Objective and Outcomes: *

• Participants will continue to analyze strengths and weakness in mathematical processes as directly related to spiral learning.
• Participants will collaborate with like-subject instructors to narrow down more specific skills for their individual content to help retention for semester 2 content.
• Participants will help students apply foundational mathematical skills in new material.
• Participants will review, as a collective group, the foundational skills needed to be successful in the second semester of Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.
• Participants will reflect on research-based practices and their own instructional practices in order to increase effectiveness of instruction and understanding of time management within the classroom.
• Students will recognize the value of spiraled topics as a way to improve skills for future math endeavors
