    In this two-day NCTM Interactive Institute—focusing on specific strategies that support students who are having difficulties in mathematics—you'll explore mathematics tasks that build students’ conceptual understanding to create a foundation for skill development.

    Featuring elementary and secondary content, both will emphasize sense making through number flexibility, number sense, and operation sense.
    You'll leave with classroom-ready, rich tasks that can be used directly with your students. 

    Elementary Topics include:                           

    Place Value
    Word Problem Solving
    Foundations of Operations
    Algorithm Development 

    Secondary Topics include:          

    Ratios and Proportions
    Expressions and Equations
    Geometric Transformations

    Attendees will: 

    • Review the structure and features of common multi-tiered systems such as Response to Intervention (Rtl).
    • Engage in tasks to support teaching concepts of number, algebra, and geometry at grades 2–12 for students with disabilities and those may need more time and different approaches.
    • Investigate foundational concepts and skills as part of learning progressions that support robust student understanding.
    • Explore instructional techniques that are evidence-based and enhance student achievement.
