Why Should I Apply?

Participants leave the course ready to work with students and implement new knowledge in their assessment and teaching practices to meet the needs of a diverse range of students. While content within AVMR 1 addresses elementary mathematics content, educators of all grade levels have found the course beneficial for identifying what students know and what instruction is likely to advance students' knowledge.
