Designing "Math that Sticks"
Would you like to increase engagement, connections and retention of student’s mathematical understandings? If so, join our community of math teachers/learners as we examine and apply research based strategies focused on how to create magical math moments to address these challenges.
In each session we will.....
- investigate effective math teaching practices
- highlight financial literacy for elementary students
- integrate STEM/STEAM activities to support curriculum
- use games to support conceptual understanding
- incorporate literature into the math classroom
- collaborate with peers
- participate in math from a learner’s perspective
Bring your electronic device and teacher materials - you will have time to plan how you might include new material into your curriculum.
- September 28th: Setting the Stage - becoming the “Ambitious Teacher”. In this session we will investigate ambitious mathematics teaching which involves skilled techniques of eliciting and responding to ALL students, so that they learn worthwhile mathematics
- November 2nd: Engaging in the Mathematics - the “why” of learning. Exploring the use of different tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving as well as investigating how to build procedural fluency and conceptual understanding.
- January 25th: Representing the Mathematics - the “what” of learning. Engaging students as active participants in making sense of mathematical ideas by exploring the role of conceptual understanding through the use of physical items, drawings/representations and symbols.
- March 14th: Eliciting Evidence of Student Thinking - the “how” of learning. Using evidence of student thinking to promote classroom discussions and engage all students in the learning process?
- May 2nd: Encouraging Productive Struggle - How do we encourage students to not give up? We will explore ideas that promote reasoning and sense making.
