A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Today, we face so many challenges as math teachers, and sometimes it can feel overwhelming. Chief among these is how to help students persevere, engage with, and be successful in math.

So many students proclaim that they “hate” math and take pride in declaring that they cannot effectively do mathematics. Within the STEM subjects, mathematics is the predominant subject where teachers face a real challenge to authentically engross students in the learning. But, as educators, we can change this trend and mindset in our students.

I have specifically designed this seminar to help you promote a Growth Mindset in your students, while also building their conceptual understanding and love of mathematics. I want to share with you the best ideas from my many years as a math teacher, coach and department coordinator. During this fast-paced seminar, you will be engaged in hands-on activities and experiences that you can immediately take back and implement the very next day. Specific math strategies, activities and resources will be shared and demonstrated.

Join me for tried-and-true ideas and practical solutions designed to help our students find joy and enjoyment in mathematics, while also greatly enhancing their understanding of key mathematical concepts. I look forward to meeting and working with you at my seminar!


Matthew Beyranevand, “Math with Matthew”

P.S. The focus will be on highly practical, classroom-tested strategies that you can implement the very next day!
