DREME: Early Math Resources for Teacher Educators

Together we will engage in a collection of open source materials that can strengthen our efforts to provide effective PD on early mathematics development.  We will use teaching and assessment videos, short readings/handouts, activities, and examples of PD implementation (use cases). Our goals are to increase knowledge about early mathematical development and useful pedagogy, and address common concerns including math anxiety.
