Teachers, principals, curriculum coaches, and other school leaders are invited to join us as we share research-based evidence on how to strengthen mathematics instruction—specifically as it relates to problem solving—and how to increase student achievement. The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) Practice Guide, Improving Mathematical Problem Solving in Grades 4 Through 8, and its five recommendations, will be the focal points of the event.

When & Where
REL Appalachia serves Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
REL Appalachia is one of 10 federal Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs). We partner with regionally-based research alliances made up of schools, districts, and state departments of education to conduct research on K-12 education. We share the results with educators and help them put this new knowledge to work for students.
REL Appalachia collaborates with the alliances to address high-priority education needs. We are currently focused on three priorities:
- Improving low-achieving schools
- Ensuring students’ college and career readiness
- Supporting effective teachers and school leaders
