Unpacking Research Claims About the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics (Open to All)
Presented by Rachel Lambert
Multiple documents exist to help math teachers understand the research behind teaching and learning mathematics, from the CCSS to IES practice guides. Increasingly, math educators face seemingly contradictory recommendations, telling different stories about the best math instruction for students. In this session, Dr. Lambert explores how different research fields understand math, math learning, and math teaching differently and the contradicting claims about research that emerge. The intention is to help math leaders make sense of these complexities for themselves.
