We wish you a happy and restful Good Friday.

On Saturday, registered participants will receive an update by email on blogging support and learning opportunities for next week.  Remember that Cathy’s questions for us are below to guide your thinking.

Learning opportunities this week are based on Cathy Fosnot’s book “Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Multiplication and Division” – Preface and Chapter 1.  We will work through one chapter per week for nine weeks.  

If you have ordered the book but it hasn’t arrived yet, Heinemann Publishers have generously allowed us to post digital copies of the Preface, Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 so that you can continue to participate while waiting for your hard copy. Details here

Feel free to experiment, interact and learn on any of the many platforms available.
