Join us for the January MTLT Teacher Talk, where we will discuss the article “Data Do Not Drive Themselves” by Rob Wieman, from our legacy journal The Mathematics Teacher.

Belonging Beyond Day One: Fostering Community in Your Math Classroom

Presented by: Lateefah Id-Deen,

This interactive session will delve into fostering a sense of belonging throughout the school year in math classrooms. Explore actionable strategies to sustain an inclusive environment, empower students, and strengthen connections, acknowledging that belongingness is an ongoing journey that evolves and deepens beyond the initial classroom introductions.

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.

Implementing the 5 Factors of Belonging

Presented by: Crystal M. Watson,

Creating a sense of belonging is important. For children, maintaining their sense of belonging should not be overlooked if we are committed to engaging them in high-quality math experiences. In this session, participants will learn about five factors identified by children to increase their sense of belonging in math spaces. The participants will learn how to implement each factor in the classroom and use mathematical standards and practices.

Classroom Conversations: Constructing Models of Relationships (Open to All)

Presented by: Craig Cullen, Lawrence Ssebaggala,

In this webinar, we will share our favorite Construct It! activity, which focuses on rate of change and functions. In contrast to our initial teaching approach to writing equations of lines, which was procedural in nature, we designed this activity to elicit student thinking and build on their reasoning. We will share some of our students’ typical reasoning patterns for this activity.
