It is time for NCTM's focus on reasoning and sense making in high school to extend to grades K-8. To improve student achievement, we must consider both content and instructional process. What are some characteristics of classrooms that implicitly build student sense making and understanding? Let's start with number and operations.
This fast-paced session will stimulate participants to think about practical ways to bring about change in their classrooms and districts. One of the authors of NCTM's Principles to Actions, Daniel Brahier, will spotlight changes in curricular and assessment practices at the secondary level that can assist with implementation of the Common Core State Standards.
This session will explore and address issues in the preparation and ongoing work of mathematics teachers at every level and offer suggestions on supporting and retaining them.
This E-Seminar will concentrate on developing mathematical and instructional knowledge of fractions, ratios, and proportional thinking to improve students' understanding of fractional concepts and procedures.
The focus of this session will be to discuss the difference between and the relationship of computational proficiency and number sense.
Jeffrey Travis, director of the IMAX 3-D movie Flatland: The Movie , shows clips from the movie and discusses the power of storytelling in mathematics and in geometry in particular.
Presidential Address, "Who's Doing the Talking?"
Haycock will review data on students' performance, identify primary problem areas, and share practices from the schools and districts that are most effective in raising achievement and closing gaps.
