The Center for Innovation in Education is…
the leading provider of math inservice in the country. Our courses are aligned with both the NCTM and Common Core Standards.

- Math Their Way (Grades TK-K-2)
- Math a Way of Thinking (Grades 2-6)

Our math programs provide a manipulative-based, activity-centered approach to mathematics. They focus on children developing an understanding of and insight into the patterns of mathematics, while emphasizing the basic arithmetic operations necessary to meet skill-based standards.

Volunteer Helpers (with 15 or more paid enrollees)

Volunteer helpers are allowed to attend the workshop at no charge in exchange for volunteering their time to support our instructors. Helpers assist the instructor on set-up day, which usually occurs on the day before the workshop begins and an hour before and after each day of the class. Helpers also have the same credit options as the participants. No helpers are needed for workshops with less than 15 enrollees.

$350.00 per person if paid in advance of the first day of the workshop.

The Center covers the cost of the instructor, including travel and housing expenses. The hosting site provides the workshop manipulatives. The participants provide their own copies of the recommended texts and the materials to bring each day. Examples of appropriate manipulatives are found on the following page.

Workshops open to the general community of teachers are posted on the Center’s website within two weeks of the receipt of the hosting application--after the school or district has been contacted by Center staff to confirm the details.
