AMP Workshops

On Saturday, January 26th AMP hosted its latest in a series of workshops at Scottsdale Community College.  We had 57 teachers who braved an unusual Scottsdale rainy day to attend the event.  Topics covered included:  exploration of the Pythagorean Theorem, fractions (featuring addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), problem solving, and a lively discussion on teachers’ reflections of various journal articles.

In spite of the weather, the day was a great success.  Our next Saturday Workshop we take place on April 6th at Chandler-Gilbert Community College.
