Teacher-Driven Learning Circles: The Community of Adult Math Instructors (CAMI)

Visual Patterns

We ran our session like a CAMI meeting. We did an open activity with visual patterns where the participants created and solved their own problems using a visual pattern we called the Buffalo Pattern. Follow this link to see photos of the teachers’ work from our NCTM workshop.
