Video Archive of Elementary Mathematics Laboratories

The video and lesson artifacts from the program are intended to serve as a valuable resource for professional developers and teacher educators to support the learning of preservice and inservice teachers. The following resources are available for each year of the mathematics laboratory:

  • Ten mathematics laboratory class sessions of approximately two-hours each
  • Twenty additional videos of education professionals discussing the lessons — ten discussions prior to each class session, and ten after each session
  • Lesson artifacts including lesson plans, lesson materials, class handouts, seating charts, digital scans of handwritten student notebooks, homework papers, study guides, and test papers.
  • Day-by-day overview format summarizing lesson highlights, available videos, and featured lesson artifacts

These materials can be accessed at tle.soe.umich.edu/EML
