Engaging High School Students in the Math Practices

Engaging High School Students 2019-2020 Workshops


High School Math Teachers, Administrators, Mathematics Instructional Coaches


The Center for Mathematics and Science Education will be hosting series of workshop at Ocean Springs High Schools to explore ways to engage high school students in the mathematical practices. During each session, participants will explore what each practice looks like in the secondary classroom and engage in content related tasks that can be implemented with students. Join us for one session or join us for all!
