Three-day in-depth course: Teaching Math for Mastery

Gain the skills and knowledge you need to get started with math mastery in your school

If you’ve been looking for the right place to get started with math mastery, this professional development course has you covered. Led by Singapore mathematics education expert Adam Gifford, this three-day course is everything you and your school need to get up and running with math mastery.

You’ll get an in-depth understanding of the concepts, strategies, and skills needed to teach the MNP approach to math mastery.
