Equitable and Ambitious Teaching of Mathematics (Closing Session)(Taking Action)
Presented by Robert Q. Berry III
Taking Action: Bringing the Effective Teaching Practices to Life in your Classroom Webinar Series
The authors of the Taking Action series developed the Mathematics Teaching Framework to illustrate how the eight teaching practices form a coherent framework for equitable and ambitious teaching of mathematics. This session uses the Mathematics Teaching Framework to explore the intersections between authority, mathematical identity, and mathematical agency with the teaching practices. Specifically, this session connects the Mathematics Teaching Framework with research that examines equitable teaching as intentional acts that teachers pursue to view each and every student as capable of doing mathematics.
Jan 12, 2021 07:00 PM : More Ideas from the Classroom on Using Children’s Literature to Make Real-World Mathematics Connections (Open to All)
In this interactive session, we will share more strategies and activities to incorporate children’s literature in mathematics. This session builds on the November webinar that featured award-winning literature from the Mathical series. The presenters and teachers from the field will share ways they have used these books and others in their classrooms to support students in problem solving, problem posing, and connecting to their life situations to help make sense of their world. 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.
