Making Sense of Mathematics

This one-day workshop helps educators understand how teaching through problem solving helps students make sense of mathematics. Participants will explore three critical features and an explicit structure to implement “teaching through problem solving” in the mathematics classroom.

 

OUTCOMES: By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Support simultaneous development of conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills with the intentional use of purposeful student struggle, flexible grouping, and ongoing assessments
  • Make mathematical tasks worthwhile and engaging for all students
  • Identify instructions skills and strategies that make mathematical relationships between ideas, facts, and procedure explicit in an intentional and public way
  • Identify common misconceptions in mathematics as opportunities for student learning
  • Support mathematics learning for diverse student populations, including English language learners

K-8 Educators, Math Coaches and Specialists
