  If teachers have never before participated in a Problem-Solving Cycle, it will be helpful to conduct an initial, preparatory workshop, which we call Workshop 0. The major objectives of Workshop 0 are to prepare teachers to take part in the Problem-Solving Cycle, and to help ensure that their experiences will be productive and rewarding. Even teachers who have worked together, established a professional relationship, and are comfortable engaging in professional development, are unlikely to have formed the kind of community that is at the heart of the Problem-Solving Cycle. In the Problem-Solving Cycle, teachers will be solving rich and challenging mathematics problems together, presenting these problems to their students, and sharing and discussing video from their lessons. Developing a community in which teachers will be comfortable engaging in these types of activities is the goal of Workshop 0.
