What is the time commitment?

When the course officially starts, the 5 modules are released one each week, plus an Implementation Week. Each week there is approximately 1 hour of instructional time and then an addition hour of extra reading. You have access to the course materials for 3 months from the date the course starts. You are able to watch them at anytime once the module is released.

Can I earn CEUs or Credits?

Each state has different requirements for what they accept for CEUs or Professional Development. So, check to see what is required. I offer a certificate of completion for 15 hours OR you can take the course for professional development credit through an accredited university that we have it set up through, you just need to pay the university their $60 fee for the credit. All participants have the option to take this course for 1 Professional Development Credit (also called Continuing Ed Credits) through an accredited university. We have it set up already through the university and once the course starts you can sign up with them for the credit, you just have to pay them the $60 for the 1 credit.

Do you take Purchase Orders?

 Is there a group discount?

For groups of 6 or more, $40/person is taken off the registration price. Email us at info@buildmathminds.com to submit a registration for 6 or more teachers. Here is more information on group pricing.

Do you have a syllabus I can show my administration?

Absolutely! For the Counting on Number Sense PreK-1 syllabus CLICK HERE.  

What if I don't finish in 3 months?

We really want you to finish! I know life is busy. Each week you can expect to spend 1- 2 hours, sometimes more, to watch videos and plan implementing what you learn. I want you to look at your schedule and see if you can commit to 2 hours a week over those 5 weeks. You do have 3 months of access to complete the content, but if you don't think you'll have time, then you can register for the 12 month access of the course or there is a way to extend your course access (by becoming a paying member of Build Math Minds) after the 3 month course access ends.
