Are you looking for great math PD this summer? Does a small and friendly conference in a coastal town in New England sound appealing to you? If you came away feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and more ready than ever to take on the new school year would you be happy?
Then join Greg Tang and his incredible Math Plus team on July 30-31 for two incredible days of learning in a beautiful coastal town. We will have three, specially-designed learning tracks for K-2, 3-5 and 6-8 teachers.
The theme for this year's Math Institute is progressions. We will not only explain and explore the most important math concepts at each grade level, we will also explain how these critical concepts fit together – both across and within each grade level.
In math, concepts build on previous concepts, and skills build on previous skills. Understanding how everything connects is the key to helping struggling students. It is also the secret to laying the groundwork for future learning. Our goal is to connect concepts and skills in both directions and make learning and teaching progressions clear.

First, we offer carefully coordinated workshops that provide a deeper, more connected understanding of mathematics. The strategies and teaching techniques we teach have been pioneered by our speakers and tested in classrooms across the country.
Unlike many conferences that offer a hodgepodge of sessions and topics, Greg’s carefully crafted curriculum targets the most important strategies, skills and standards. Attendees gain a deeper understanding of both effective teaching methods and important mathematical content.
Second, our speakers have been selected because they are master communicators who can articulate their thoughts and ideas clearly and concisely. Each is a proven orator and author, and together they have trained thousands of teachers and sold millions of books.
Every speaker is friendly, approachable and exceptionally gracious too. Our goal is a collegial atmosphere that encourages questions, dialogue and meaningful interactions. We want this to be the best two days of learning you have ever experienced!
Third, unlike large conferences with huge budgets for marketing, we put all of our time, energy, and resources into our speakers and curriculum. We provide 12 hours of math instruction plus an additional 4.5 hours of instruction in the arts. That’s over 16 hours of world-class instruction in 2 days. We are excited and ready to work with you!
