About this workshop

This two and a half day workshop will provide the opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. Participants will select a mathematical topic and prepare future professional development for a particular grade band. Following this work, participants will return to their regions equipped to lead professional development on the Common Core in Mathematics.

Participants are responsible for their expenses; registration fee will be $150.


We recommend that participants stay at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Tucson Reid Park, phone 520-881-4200. Please mention Common Core State Standards to receive the special rate of $119 per night.


This workshop will run from 8:30am on Friday, February 17 until 12:00pm on Sunday, February 19.
