Catalyzing Change: An Overview of the 4 Key Recommendations for Early Childhood and Elementary Mathematics
Join us in this informative webinar as we take a closer look at NCTM’s recently released Catalyzing Change in Early Childhood and Elementary Mathematics. As we launch children on their mathematical journeys, we need to broaden the purposes of learning mathematics, create equitable structures, implement equitable instruction, and develop deep mathematical understanding. We will discuss and provide examples highlighting wonder, joy, and deep learning of mathematics. Special attention will be given to considering how the messages of Catalyzing Change challenge us to dismantle inequitable policies and practices in order to ensure the highest-quality mathematics education for each and every child.
May 28, 2020 07:00 PM : Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics: Initiating Critical Conversations Centered on the 4 Key Recommendations
Our current situation further brings to the forefront inequities and inconsistencies that exist within middle school mathematics programs. We will explore the four key recommendations from NCTM's recently released Catalyzing Change in Middle School Mathematics to examine the roles of middle schools in broadening the purposes of learning mathematics, creating equitable structures, implementing equitable instruction, and developing deep mathematical understanding. Special attention will be given to how Catalyzing Change can provide structure and guidance during our current situations – positioning the development of students' positive mathematical identity and strong sense of agency at the forefront. Let's work together to rightfully empower young adolescences through mathematics!
