Supporting Students' Pathways through the Cycle of Inquiry and Justification
Presented by Michelle Cirillo and Jenifer Hummer
The Cycle of Inquiry and Justification was delineated as an essential concept for High School Mathematics (NCTM, 2018). After spending three years observing this cycle in classrooms, we identified the transition from conjecturing to proving as a key site for conceptual obstacles. These obstacles and strategies for overcoming them are explored.
Jun 11, 2020 07:00 PM : Turning Adversaries Into Allies: Building Community-Wide Support for Your Initiatives in Mathematics Education
Any initiative in mathematics education, whether classroom-based or state-wide, requires support from stakeholders (students, parents, administrators, school board, etc.) if it is going to be successful. However, building and sustaining that support can be challenging, especially if there are pockets of skeptics actively working against your goals. This session will address these challenges and provide educators and leaders with strategies and resources to help them build momentum in their communities to support meaningful and powerful mathematics education for each and every student.
