Oklahoma Math: Project-Based Learning Webinar

Telannia Norfar will host the monthly math webinar on Monday, June 15 at 6 p.m.. The webinars occur every third Monday of the month. This month’s webinar will focus on project-based learning in the math classroom. According to Buck Institute for Education, project based learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge. You can register for the webinar at the following link. This will be the third webinar sponsored by Oklahoma Council of Teachers of Mathematics and OKMathteachers.com. If you missed the webinars, below are brief explanations and links to their recording.
