Why Patterns?

Professional learning doesn't have to be complicated, but it should be adaptable, applicable, and foster community.

Flexibility for a perfect fit

Patterns offers a combination of live and asynchronous, individual and collaborative learning that caters to each teacher's schedule, pace, location, and mathematical content area.

Real strategies for real classrooms

Patterns is a program that keeps teachers grounded in the classroom, with ample opportunities to actively engage in mathematical discourse and learn practical strategies they can implement with their own students.

Power of peers

Patterns fosters learning through a community of math educators who empower one another, exchange expertise and fresh ideas, and give actionable feedback.

How is Patterns delivered?

Patterns blends self- and group-paced activities—always with opportunities for learning with peers—over the course of a semester with:

  • Synchronous coursework, where an expert guides participants through mathematical tasks, thinking, application, and reflection.
  • Asynchronous weeks, when participants study professional reading selections, review student work, apply learning, and develop learner stories on their own schedule.
  • On-demand, one-on-one coaching sessions available by appointment every three weeks throughout the course.

Patterns participants can expect to: 

  • Engage as active virtual learners via discussion boards and coaching sessions.
  • Solve hands-on, cognitively demanding mathematical tasks.
  • Participate in rich mathematical discourse with a community of math educators who empower one another, exchange expertise, and give actionable feedback.
  • Make connections across grade-level standards within their mathematical focus area.
  • Reflect on their own understanding of mathematics and classroom practice.
  • Use a variety of virtual instructional strategies.
