Rhode island Mathematics teachers Association
SUM: Steps to Understanding Mathematics is a professional development series and resource for Number Sense instruction that was adapted from First Steps in Mathematics (FSiM) in a partnership between RIMTA: Rhode Island Mathematics Teachers Association and RIDE: Rhode Island Department of Education. Beginning in the Spring 2019, RIMTA is primarily responsible for the Professional Development Course as well as Implementation Support. We are excited that some school districts have begun to offer their own SUM professional development opportunities. RIMTA continues to offer the course periodically.
The next SUM Teacher/Interventionist course will be held Thursday nights throughout the 2019-2020 school year. Get more details here or go to the related RIMTA Events page for details and registration information.
