Course Description

Math Workstations are such powerful, engaging, rigorous structures for learning. When workstations are data-driven, standards-based, intentional spaces, they can and do improve student achievement. Take the course and learn how to assess for, plan, design, implement and assess the work done in math workstations. This course is designed around Dr. Nicki’s book Math Workstations in Action – Grades 3-5. The price includes full access to the course and materials. You must pay $50 to Humboldt for the 1 unit credit. 

The University does not issue transcripts until the end of May.

If you want to take the course for credit, you must email us at drnickiconferences@gmail.com. We will then send you the link to register with the university.
