Why teach math unit by unit when you can mix it up and give students multiple opportunities to cement their learning through daily practice and ongoing re-exposure to curricular outcomes and skills? Back with their unorthodox but evidence-based approach to teaching math, this team of math teachers from Harry Ainlay High School will work with you as you start on your exciting journey of interleaving your own course! Starting with lesson sequencing, to the creation of problem sets, to the development of assessments, come learn how to implement this novel pedagogical approach in your own classroom.
