Engaging Students in Thinking and Reasoning Mathematically

Routines can keep your classroom running smoothly. Imagine having a set of routines focused on helping students develop their mathematical thinking skills. This Saturday Series focuses on using the math practices as a vehicle for weaving critical thinking and reasoning into your daily teaching practices. Because not all math practices are created equal, we will focus on supporting teachers as they select the right practice for the right task. The emphasis will be to help teachers explicitly elicit mathematical thinking from their students by engaging them in a variety of tasks and activities that support students’ depth of knowledge in mathematics.

Five Sessions:


Times: 8:30AM – 4:00PM (lunch & light snacks will be provided)

Location: Sacramento City College Davis; 1720 Jade Street, Davis, CA 95616


The following themes will run throughout all five sessions. Participants are welcome to attend all, a few, or even just one session. Have fun with us as we collaborate on ways to deepen students’ mathematical abilities.

Elementary Sessions: In both the Kindergarten-2nd grade group and the 3rd-5th grade group, each session will include using math in STEM/STEAM and literature, Math Workshops, Tasks, Hands-on-Activities, the use of manipulatives, writing and problem solving.

Secondary Sessions: In both the 6th-8th grade group and the 9th-12th grade group, each session will include openers, team building activities, performance tasks; project based learning/modeling tasks, strategies for promoting effective mathematical arguments, and the use of technology.
