APPROPRIATE USE POLICIES
MMRI is a professional development institute and the Materials are designed for educators to use in their classrooms, private practices, and homes. Therefore, educators are encouraged to practice and apply the Making Math Real Multisensory Structured Content Methodologies, K-12, from any of the Making Math Real content courses with their students.
As a condition precedent to this license, you are prohibited to train others, to conduct clinics, presentations, or workshops in any of the Making Math Real Multisensory Structured Content Methodologies, K-12 or in any of the Materials.
Attendance at one or more of MMRI’s professional development courses does not create an express or implied license to train others to conduct clinics, presentations, or workshops in MMRI’s proprietary Materials including the Making Math Real Multisensory Structured Content Methodologies, K-12, or to certify any individual in the use or administration of MMRI’s methods.
Upon completion of courses, participants are generally able to begin applying the Making Math Real-based methods with students in the classroom or private practice. However, participants’ completion of course work does not authorize them to present themselves publicly or otherwise as trained in Making Math Real. Only employees of MMRI are authorized to present themselves as Making Math Real Trained.
In addition, it is unlawful to use the Making Math Real trademark, title, logos, or graphics as an advertisement for services or any other purpose without the express written consent from David Berg and/or MMRI. Course participants are allowed to advertise the “use of Making Math Real-based methods” in their description of services, but not in such a way as to imply endorsement by and/or affiliation with MMRI. Educators who include Making Math Real methods in their description of services are highly recommended to specify in which methods they have received Making Math Real instruction. Therefore, any party representing themselves as Making Math Real trained, and not employed by MMRI, is implying an affiliation with MMRI that does not exist, thereby infringing on the proprietary rights of MMRI by misrepresenting themselves to the public as an employee of MMRI.
