### Math Professional Learning Community (PLC)

A math Professional Learning Community (PLC) is made-up of course team members that are teaching the same subject of math. For example, course teams members who are all teaching Algebra I or all teaching Pre-Calculus. In small schools, the course team may consist of one PLC team/group of teacher teaching the math level of math such as college prep class or gifted classes. Either way the course teams are designed the purpose of the PLC team does not change. My experience of being team leads of several different math course teams and also being just a member of course teams has taught me the following: 1. Set a pacing calendar that all team members have input on the design. This may take several days or a week to fully design because of the varying input from all team members. I suggest to Not move forward until EVERYONE is on-board and agrees to the structure of the content pacing. 2. Set group norms. What are the expectations at the meetings and between meetings? 3. Assign duties/
