Common Core Webinars
Every month they offer a webinar on how to support the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics through the use of dynamic technology tools. The Common Core webinars highlight how to foster the mathematical practices, particularly modeling with mathematics, using tools strategically, and construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Each month has a different mathematical focus.
