Using Children's Literature to Make Real-World Mathematics Connections (Open to All)
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.
Nov 24, 2020 07:00 PM : Teaching Practices that Support Student Understanding and Learning of Mathematics (Opening Session)(Taking Action)
<p> <b><i>Taking Action: Bringing the Effective Teaching Practices to Life in your Classroom</i> Webinar Series</b> </p> <p> In the nearly three decades since the release of the Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics (NCTM, 1991), much has been learned about the teaching practices that support students’ understanding and learning of mathematics. In Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM, 2014), this accumulated knowledge and empirical evidence has been codified into a core set of eight effective mathematics teaching practices that represent essential teaching skills necessary to promote learning mathematics with understanding. In this session, participants will learn about the practices and how they can support student learning. </p>
