Strategic and Standardized Redesign of Gateway Mathematics
Completing gateway mathematics is one of the most significant predictors of student retention, progression, and completion at Miami Dade College. Data revealed a need for transformation of MDC's gateway mathematics courses. MDC redesigned the curriculum of those courses, trained professors, and improved academic placement. The next stage is underway, with contextualized curriculum designed to appeal to Miami residents, and Instructional Learning Assistants using Co-Requisite materials in Recitation Hall to improve mathematics competency in sequential courses.

Bridging the Gap Between Professional Learning and the Classroom
Ever wonder why teachers don't implement what they learn from professional learning opportunities? Have you ever led trainings with participants saying, "Those were great ideas, I can't wait to implement them," only for the ideas to not take hold? Following a Chinese Proverb, "I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand," we will explore a professional learning model where teachers get hands-on experiences to implement in classrooms immediately.

Growth Mindset and Mistakes: Opportunities to Increase Student Learning
Students who literally "learn from their mistakes" and view these mistakes as positive rather than negative experiences can develop not only a growth mindset, but also develop opportunities for deeper learning. Students must make mistakes and correct them to learn mathematics deeply, and they will become open to investigating mistakes if they view them as a step toward mastery.

Transform Your Work with Students Who Struggle to Learn Mathematics
The eight Mathematics Teaching Practices from NCTM's Principles to Actions (2014) are high-leverage practices designed to promote deep learning of mathematics. To facilitate access to this level of learning, we must support struggling learners as we employ these Mathematics Teaching Practices. To that end, we will consider ways to integrate instructional approaches that attend to struggling learners' learning characteristics with these Mathematics Teaching Practices to ensure we are teaching for rigorous understanding for all students.

Leading Learners to Level Up: Establishing and Using Goals to Focus Learning
Effective mathematics teaching begins with establishing goals to focus learning. We want students to persevere and to show their work and [insert any mathematical content goal]. But what if they can't yet? When success pathways are visible, learners are empowered to reach for the next level in their learning. How might teachers use leveled learning progressions and worked examples to empower learners to become self-correcting, self-reliant, and independent?

How Will We Know What They're Thinking? Sparking Teachers' Curiosity About Students' Mathematical Ideas
Curiosity about students' mathematical thinking is the heart of effective, joyful mathematics teaching. There are four channels via which we can gather information about student thinking: looking at student work, observing students while they work, conferring with students about their thinking, and asking students to reflect on their learning. Together, we'll explore how teaching teachers to open these channels sparks a productive chain reaction. Getting hooked on students' mathematical thinking is the most essential step!
