From Knowns to Unknowns: A journey into Teaching Mathematics
Presented by Trena Wilkerson
Webinar description: For me teaching has been a journey encountering things I knew would happen and then at times, things that were unknown. Knowns may be our students, our goals, or our purpose in teaching. Unknowns might include changes in curriculum and assessment, life experiences, and global events such as we are experiencing now. All these happenings shape us as individuals, as a learning community, and as teachers of mathematics. Join me in exploring this journey and ways NCTM can connect, support, and grow our mathematics teaching and learning community in the knowns and in the unknowns.

We have been traditionally taught to identify and remediate students' mathematical misconceptions and weaknesses. This session is about reframing students' mathematical learning opportunities by identifying students' strengths to develop powerful and strategic learning opportunities that capitalize on those strengths to build mathematical success.
