Advanced Quantitative Reasoning / Advanced Mathematical Decision Making Institute

Grade-level focus: High School
Session audience: Mathematics teachers, instructional specialists and coaches, and district leaders
Session duration and date: 5-day session

Advanced Quantitative Reasoning (AQR), also known as Advanced Mathematical Decision Making (AMDM), covers a range of mathematics topics presented in applied contexts, including statistics and finance, that develop students’ college and career readiness skills.

During this institute, you will experience selected student activities and course projects from the perspectives of both a learner and a teacher. You will network with participants from other high schools and collaborate on how to facilitate and assess student learning using the course’s instructional model. As an institute participant, you will also have a full year’s access to a facilitated online community, which provides instructional resources and supports as well as opportunities to exchange ideas with other participants.

Sessions run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and include continental breakfast and lunch. Hotel accommodations and other travel expenses to the sessions are the responsibility of the attendee.

Each participant will receive printed and electronic copies of AQR/AMDM student and teacher materials. To access the electronic materials and the online community during the institute, you must bring your own laptop.

AQR/AMDM course materials and professional learning services were developed in cooperation with the Texas Association of Supervisors of Mathematics with generous development funding provided by the Greater Texas Foundation. For more information about the course, see the AQR/AMDM section of our website.
