360 Degree Math: Transform the Math Classroom
Flip the script in the math class by putting your students center stage with 360 degree math. Learn how you can easily upgrade the learning environment with some whiteboard paint or just a bunch of whiteboards plastered throughout your room. Attendees will run through a variety of simulations of what it's like teach in a 360 degree math class. They'll also leave with the resources(inventory, implementation, tech integration) to go back to their sites and demand this in their own classroom.
