During our second workshop, twenty-eight Grand Island Public School third, fourth and fifth grade teachers, along with our guest Kathleen Fimple from the Postsecondary Commission, enthusiastically participated in a variety of interesting activities with two broad goals:
1) unpacking fraction standards and mapping content
2) building strategies for mathematical discourse
Posters of participants' activities and video recordings of the workshop can be found in the Workshop 2 Resources.

Workshop 1 Featured
On August 03, 2015, we successfully hosted our first workshop and officially launched emiUNK Learning Module 1. Twenty-eight Grand Island Public School third, fourth and fifth grade teachers, along with a few administrators, participated in a variety of interesting number sense activities during the workshop.
The emiUNK participants enthusiastically engaged in a variety of activities focused on defining, understanding, conceptualizing, and applying number sense in the mathematics classroom.
A few workshop highlights included border problem activity facilitated by Dr. Nebesniak, number sense-based game by by Dr. Knoell, and defining number sense by Dr. Strawhecker. Video recordings of those activities will be posted to our website soon.
