These sessions get rave reviews from participants. Bob keeps teachers engaged and informed throughout each two-hour seminar.
He also grills a mean salmon, but we'll save that recipe for tomorrow!
Excel Math is now available in three versions:
Texas (TEKS aligned)
Standard (Non Common Core)
Bob has a Professional Development session tailored to meet the needs of teachers using each of these editions. Take a look at Texas Professional Development here.

Within these areas, Bob offers two different Professional Development seminars: one for users new to Excel Math (Initial P.D.) and the other (Next Step P.D.) for schools that have used Excel Math for a period of time.
For the Initial P.D.: The Excel Math Professional Development gives teachers instructional strategies (best practices) for effective direct instruction and tips to take full advantage of the three components of Excel Math.
Plus, you will learn how to utilize the regular assessment in Excel Math for maximum instruction.
Because Excel Math emphasizes Critical Thinking instead of fill-in-the-blank answers, the Excel Math lessons are an outstanding bridge to the new requirements of the Common Core and State Standards.
Additionally, this in-service includes how to effectively blend Excel Math with an adopted core curriculum for maximum instruction in cases where Excel Math is used as a supplement.
For the Next Step P.D.: "Excel Math—Your Bridge to the Common Core" explores in more depth the specifics of Excel Math as an outstanding bridge to the new requirements of the Common Core and State Standards and reviews Instructional Strategies outlined in the Initial Professional Development.
The fee for each in-service seminar is minimal—to cover travel costs from California. Professional Development seminars are subject to availability. Generally, each session is a little under two hours in length.
