About this Learning Opportunity

The four-day math series will focus on exploring essential concepts in the new grade 4-6 math curriculum. Throughout the sessions, teachers will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the required knowledge, skills, and procedures. They will discover effective strategies, engage in collaborative planning, and prepare to kick-start their year.  Components that will be explored further are the New Learn Alberta website, engaging students in the math classroom and what a suggested year plan could look like.  

Please choose one set of dates that works best for you - either in July or August - as the content for both weeks will be the same.

It's important to note that all participants will have access to the recordings. If you are unable to attend a particular day, you can catch up by reviewing the recording at your convenience. Each day's content can be reviewed independently, so you won't fall behind if you happen to miss a day.

We look forward to your active participation in the session.

We kindly request you watch the videos that will be sent with your confirmation of registration email.
