Resiliency, Creativity, and Adaptations: Telling our Stories
Presented by Robert Q. Berry III
The current context has demonstrated the importance of building resilience in a rapidly changing landscape. While many of us face challenges, such as adapting the ways we teach, adapting work responsibilities with family, and adapting approaches to engage in self-care and connecting to others. We are incredibly resilient, and the current context reminds us that we are preparing learners for an unpredictable world requiring informed decision making, creative problem solving, and adaptability. This session continues the conversation on resiliency, creativity, and adaptation.
Nov 17, 2020 07:00 PM : Using Children's Literature to Make Real-World Mathematics Connections (Open to All)
<p>In this interactive session, we will share strategies and activities to incorporate children’s literature in mathematics. Incorporating children’s literature in the mathematics classroom provides students with an opportunity to connect mathematical concepts to the real world and engage in problem-posing tasks that relate to real-life situations and help students make sense of their world. This session will feature award-winning literature from the Mathical series. The purpose of the Mathical Book Prize, awarded by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, is to inspire a love of mathematics in the everyday world of children.</p>
