Course Testimonials:
This course, Time To Read: Professional Materials is perhaps the most meaningful course I have ever taken during my very long teaching career! I had stockpiled year’s worth of books and workbooks which I never seemed to find the time to read. This class gave me the structure I needed to make the time to read. I have really enjoyed incorporating what I have learned in my classroom. It was also reassuring to find that I knew more than I realized about math history. It has always been a strong belief of mine that math history needs to be taught along with the mathematics. Thank you for designing a course which is truly useful for educators.

It was so helpful to be able to customize my reading material to my needs, and the course gave me the structure to take the time to read everything carefully and pause to reflect.
