Rough Drafts in Math Class: Going beyond Getting Correct Answers (General Interest) (sponsored by Stenhouse Publishers)

Presented by: Amanda Jansen,

Webinar description: In this workshop, we will explore how to treat the process of doing mathematics as generating a rough draft, gaining new insights, and revising. Rough draft thinking is a process of continuously developing understanding. When mathematics teachers welcome students' in-progress ideas, learning mathematics can be less threatening and more meaningful.
