Professional Development (Part 1 + Part 2)

JUMP Math is a teaching approach paired with classroom resources aimed at eradicating math anxiety and enabling students to reach their full potential in mathematics. 

This two-part webinar is geared for educators eager to learn more about the JUMP Math approach and classroom resources. Through a partnership between the University of Calgary, Werklund School of Education researchers, and JUMP Math, Math Minds created an approach to teaching mathematics that is evidence-based, theory-driven, and outreach-oriented. This webinar is aligned to the research findings from Math Minds, presenting a number of proven methods that teachers can use to strengthen and sustain mathematics ability and performance, improve student confidence, and boost student enjoyment of math. In the webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about the JUMP Math philosophy
  • Understand how the Math Minds research has informed our teaching approach
  • Become familiar with JUMP Math's teacher and student materials
  • Discuss practical classroom strategies to reach each and every student

This four-hour webinar costs $52.92 per participant. The fee includes Part 1 and Part 2, both of which must be completed in sequence. For your convenience, we run sessions regularly and both Part 1 and Part 2 can be completed in a manageable four hours total. You will receive an e-mail one day prior to the webinar, containing detailed instructions on how to log in.
