Building off the content and pedagogy of the EMPower adult numeracy curriculum, a cadre of teachers and TERC educators or staff will develop, deliver, and evaluate three targeted mini-lessons delivered online to build conceptual understanding of key math topics for students with math skills significantly below grade level (aligned to 8th grade and below CCSS). Video of students explaining their thinking and connections to everyday life, annotated student work samples, and recommendations for content-aligned online resources will supplement the mini-lessons.
