Product Description

Presenter: Margaret S. Smith, University of Pittsburg, Pittsburgh, PA

Grade Band: General Interest

Description: This seminar will focus on the relationship between the nature of the mathematical tasks in which students engage and what students ultimately learn about what mathematics is and how one does it. Specifically, the seminar will focus on the cognitive demands of mathematical tasks, how these demands can change during instruction, and why maintaining the high level demands of tasks is critical to student learning. Participants will have opportunity to engage in an analysis of two tasks, to analyze several short vignettes of classroom instruction, and to consider research that makes salient the impact of tasks on learning.

Note: You will receive a recording of this E-Seminar as well as a Site Facilitator Guide.

Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
