Maximize Success for Your Geometry Students

NEW Seminar Presented By
Brad Fulton

Outstanding Educator and National Presenter

Specifically Designed for Middle School and High School General Mathematics, Geometry Teachers, Math Interventionists, Instructional Aides, and Administrators

  • Follow a proven research-based pathway that will maximize success for your geometry students
  • Learn hands-on activities that will get your students involved in mastering geometry
  • Find out how to fill the gaps that are preventing your students from having success
  • Create a geometry class where you hear, “I get it!”

Practical Strategies

Many of our students struggle in geometry, but the research-based solutions that will move them toward success are known and available. In this NEW seminar by outstanding secondary Math teacher BRAD FULTON, you will learn how to better engage and empower your Grades 6-12 Geometry students.

Brad will show you how you can:

  • Use proven research to maximize your geometry instruction
  • Transition students through geometry incrementally for deeper understanding
  • Build geometric reasoning on a foundation of understanding
  • Use rich and engaging activities that will lead to greater mastery of geometry
In this activity-rich seminar, Brad will share his techniques that have been tested and proven in years of use in the math classroom. He’ll show you how he turned his students into the best-prepared math students in their high school.

A Message from Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As a fellow educator, I have spent well over 30 years searching for the best strategies for helping students better understand geometry. From this experience, I will share the best and most practical and proven strategies for maximizing the impact of your geometry instruction, and I’m glad to say that with these strategies all students can find success in geometry!

I can’t wait to share my strategies and activities at our seminar! Like you, I want students to not only succeed in geometry, but to understand it and to appreciate its beauty. I promise that every technique that I share has not only worked in my classroom, but they have been implemented by other teachers across the nation. I’ll share my techniques and classroom proven strategies with you and show you how you can maximize the success for your own students.

I’ll share the best-of-the-best of my classroom-proven geometry strategies. I’m still using these strategies in the classroom every day, so I’m going to show you what is working for me and will work for you. See you at the seminar!

Sincerely,
Brad Fulton

P.S. I guarantee you will leave this seminar re-energized and armed with ready-to-use tools and strategies that will make a tremendous difference for your Grades 6-12 Geometry students.
