Math Boot Camp
Math Boot Camp is a compact and focused professional development opportunity that is focused on the math that is in the Common Core Learning Standards. In each grade-level band, participants will learn math and experience the math in that grade-level (and contiguous grades). While good math pedagogy will be practiced and demonstrated, the emphasis is on the math content.
