NBA Math Hoops: Creating the Next Math Champion! (Sponsored Product Demo)(Open to All)
NBA Math Hoops features a comprehensive community program, digital and physical board game, mobile app, and curriculum that allows students to learn fundamental math and social-emotional skills through the game of basketball and the NBA/WNBA. All program content is developed in alignment with Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills, and has been shown to improve students’ foundational math and social-emotional skills. We explicitly strive to reach students who have historically been underrepresented in STEM fields, specifically girls, students of color, and students from under-resourced communities.
Through our webinar, educators will learn best practices for implementing the NBA Math Hoops game and curriculum in either a facilitated or independent learning environment, gain FREE access to the Learn Fresh program management platform and all program materials, and learn about opportunities to extend students’ learning through virtual and in-person community events.
Dec 03, 2020 07:00 PM : Focus on High School: Eliciting and Using Students’ Thinking and Building Procedural Fluency from Conceptual Understanding (Taking Action)
<p> <b> <i>Taking Action: Bringing the Effective Teaching Practices to Life in your Classroom</i> Webinar Series </b> </p> <p> In high school mathematics, supporting students to understand important mathematical procedures and concepts is essential in promoting ongoing participation and success in mathematics and other STEM fields. In this session, participants will explore the Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices of (1) building procedural fluency from conceptual understanding and (2) eliciting and using evidence of students’ thinking. We will consider how sequences of tasks can establish a conceptual foundation for building fluency and understanding of procedures by providing opportunities for students to recognize structure and make sense of repeated reasoning. We will analyze students’ work to consider the importance of eliciting students’ thinking and using their thinking to determine our next instructional moves. We will also discuss how the ideas highlighted during the session can generalize to other mathematical topics in the high school curriculum. </p>
