Madison Park Business & Art Academy, Oakland

The team of five teachers, spanning elementary through high school, will engage in a two-year study around best practices to improve mathematical literacy. By working regularly with a SCALE consultant (the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, and Equity), attending the California Mathematics Council conference, and engaging in cycles of inquiry and ongoing study, the team members aim to become experts in best practices for working with English Language Learners to improve the ability to understand the “language” of math and use numbers to help solve real-world problems. Once effective strategies have been identified, this team will present the strategy to the whole staff with the goal of school-wide implementation.
