AMC Professional Development
Math Perspectives Teacher Development Center (MP) is committed to the successful implementation of AMC in the classroom.
MP helps teachers learn how children develop an understanding of math concepts and how to interpret the assessment information they have gathered to inform their instruction for better results.
Teachers will also learn to design differentiated, focused instruction to promote growth and development of the core number concepts.
To make full use of the Assessing Math Concepts assessments to determine and meet the instructional needs of their students, teachers need to understand the development of number concepts, what the information gained from the assessment means, and how to create a learning environment that allows them to meet the range of needs identified.
Kathy Richardson, developer of the AMC Assessments, is the co-founder and Program Director for Math Perspectives. The mission of Math Perspectives Teacher Development Center is to provide Pre-K to 5th grade mathematics educators with tools, strategies, and assessments that will ensure that all students are successful in the study of mathematics and are able to use mathematics to solve problems and to think and reason mathematically.
