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.
SUM courses are on hold for right now. Reach out to Gina or Meredith or the SUM User Group on Facebook for ongoing support. We are also working with Bridge-RI to make this professional development more accessible. Watch for more information in the coming months.
A Google Folder of resources for SUM participants can be found here.
A digital community, SUM: Steps to Understanding Mathematics - User Group is available on Facebook. Link here and request permission to join the group to share resources, problem solve and receive or provide support with other SUM users.
