Track Descriptions
The Leadership Path – Facilitated by the CEMSE Center at the University of Chicago

Enhance your understanding of Everyday Mathematics as an administrator or mentor/coach to ensure implementation success. In addition to the 3rd Edition of Everyday Mathematics, the new Everyday Mathematics 4 edition will also be used as a part of this training.

Designed for:
New and Experienced: Administrators, Mentor/Coaches, or Curriculum Coordinators of Everyday Mathematics
(Educators new to Everyday Mathematics may benefit from participating in the Initial Training session of Everyday Mathematics prior to attending Leadership Training)

Workshop Objective:
To increase understanding of the Everyday Mathematics program for school or district math leaders as they monitor and support implementation.

This Pathway includes:
  • Examine the benefits and features which create the Everyday Mathematics classroom environment and gain insight on practical support of teachers and staff.
  • Experience various routines in order to understand the Everyday Mathematics approach to teaching and learning mathematics.
  • Increase understanding of the assessment and differentiation opportunities embedded within the program and the many opportunities to assess students for summative and formative information.
  • Identify the successes and challenges experienced in implementing Everyday Mathematics.
  • Brainstorm ideas towards communicating effectively with families about Everyday Mathematics.
  • Learn by doing: a hands-on approach.
  • Investigate the correlation to the Common Core Sate Standards and how Everyday Mathematics correlates to both Content and Practice Standards.
  • Examine the vast array of technology resources available in Everyday Mathematics to support planning, instruction, differentiation and assessment.
  • Collaborate and network with fellow leaders on key topics: differentiation, district initiatives and methods of communication with faculty, students and parents. Experience the various online tools and collaborate with fellow educators on how these tools can be used creatively.


The Early Childhood Classroom Path – EM4

Spend the entire conference with Early Childhood experts! Teachers will gain valuable insight into the mathematical understandings of the young child.

Designed for:
Early Childhood Teachers, Coaches and Curriculum Coordinators who would like to target the Kindergarten classroom in Everyday Mathematics and/or have minimal knowledge of Everyday Mathematics in the early grades. This pathway is for new AND experienced users.

Workshop Objective:
To prepare educators to teach or support instruction in early childhood classrooms of Everyday Mathematics.

This Pathway includes:
  • Explore the philosophy and components that comprise the Everyday Mathematics program.
  • Experience the routines found within the Everyday Mathematics program.
  • Play, analyze and discuss the role of games in Everyday Mathematics.
  • Participate in a model lesson to reflect on opportunities for questioning, assessment, differentiation, and other instructional strategies. Investigate the various Everyday Mathematics assessment opportunities.
  • Brainstorm ideas for effective communication with families and review materials that will support these ideas.
  • Work through hands-on activities that will help gain insight on pacing, problem solving and preparing to teach Everyday Mathematics effectively.
  • Share and examine various management techniques to create this stimulating environment – creating partnerships and small groups, managing and provoking conversation and dialogue, modeling mathematics and more.
  • Explore the digital resources within Everyday Mathematics as they relate to planning, instruction, assessment, and parent communication.
  • Collaborate and network with fellow educators using Everyday Mathematics.


EM4 Initial Implementation Path – Grades 1-6

Learn to effectively implement Everyday Mathematics 4 for the first time!

Designed for:
Teachers, Coaches and Curriculum Coordinators who will be implementing or supporting Everyday Mathematics 4 in their classroom in Fall, 2015. (Kindergarten teachers implementing Everyday Mathematics 4 should register for the Early Childhood Path.)

Workshop Objective:
To prepare educators to teach or support grades 1 - 6 of Everyday Mathematics 4.

This Pathway includes:
  • Explore the philosophy, format and design as well as the components that comprise the Everyday Mathematics 4 program.
  • Investigate the Common Core Sate Standards and how Everyday Mathematics addresses both Content and Practice Standards through GMCs and GMPs.
  • Experience the games and increased emphasis on routines found within Everyday Mathematics 4.
  • Play, analyze and discuss the role of games in Everyday Mathematics.
  • Discover the role of the Open Response and Reengagement lesson within each unit.
  • Investigate the various Everyday Mathematics assessment opportunities including Assessment Check-Ins and digital opportunities.
  • Brainstorm ideas for effective communication with families and review materials that will support these ideas.
  • Work through hands-on activities that will help gain insight on pacing, problem solving, fact fluency and preparing to teach Everyday Mathematics 4 effectively.
  • Experience the various online tools and resources while collaborating with fellow educators on how these tools can be used creatively in your instruction.
  • AND much more!


The Experienced User Path – EM4 Grade 1 and 2 teachers with one year of EM4 experience

Explore the abundance of opportunity in Everyday Mathematics to engage students in the learning of math content and improve problem solving and reasoning skills found in Everyday Mathematics. An emphasis will be placed on investigation, hands-on opportunities and modeling, math conversation and questioning ... as well as games and routines. Explore the effective use of technology in the classroom through the Everyday Mathematics 4 digital components. Deepen your understanding of how the Standards for Mathematical Practice are embedded in the Everyday Mathematics program and the impact of the Open Response and Reengagement lessons.

Designed for:
Exploring the numerous opportunities available to help students engage in mathematics through manipulatives, strategy groups and questioning techniques; deepen the understanding of how formative and summative assessments guide the teaching of Everyday Mathematics and the many resources offered to support teaching and learning; provide strategies for experienced Everyday Mathematics educators to more effectively select and use instructional differentiation opportunities within their instruction and explore the Everyday Mathematics 4 Digital delivery and the various resources and components used by teachers.

Workshop Objective:
Teachers, Coaches and Administrators who have attended a previous Everyday Mathematics 4 training and are current users of Everyday Mathematics 4 Experienced. (Users of Everyday Mathematics implementing EM4 for the first time in Fall, 2015, should register for the EM4 Implementation Pathway.)
