WestEd/Silicon Valley Mathematics Institute's Summer Virtual Math Institute 2021

Professional Development Spring/Simmer Virtual Events, WestEd

Please join us for our second virtual Summer Math Institute, Open Math Tasks, Learning Recovery, and Fulfilling the Promise of the New California Math Framework.

Date: July 26-29, 2021 (Monday-Thursday)

What is the focus?

WSVMI’s online Summer Math Institute will address topics that are top of mind for teachers and leaders as they navigate the return to in-person or hybrid math instruction, including:

  • What are the most effective, research-supported strategies for supporting students’ math learning recovery?
  • How can open math tasks be used to support rigorous math learning recovery that balances procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving skills?
  • What is in the newly revised California Math Framework, and how can we ensure alignment with 2021-2022 learning recovery plans?

What is the time commitment?

Participants should plan for:

  • 1-2 hours of offline pre-work before the Summer Institute
  • 2 hours of interactive online activities each morning with WestEd facilitators and fellow participants
  • 1-2 hours each day of interactive online time with a small breakout group (to be scheduled by the small group)
  • 1 hour each day of offline, individual work between sessions (follow-up work & prep for the next session)
