MDC Is an Obsession for One North Carolina Teacher

Claudia Rodriguez sums up her excitement about the Mathematics Design Collaborative training with one word — obsessed. “I’m obsessed with the formative assessment lessons (FALs),” the North Asheboro Middle School mathematics teacher explains, referencing the formative assessment lessons she used during MDC training. “The FALs are really so rich in content — in math content and precision — that I love it!”
