Barbara Ann Rumph

Ms. Rumph and Ms. Kinder form a mathematics learning group to increase student achievement by expanding their knowledge of the curriculum. Participants review research literature about teaching mathematics and view videos on how to use student work to assess student understanding of mathematics. In addition, the team develops mathematics workshops for their colleagues and sponsors Family Math Nights. Teachers keep journals on what they learn and document effective strategies for teaching the curriculum. Analysis of the journals enables participants to evaluate their study group project.
