Making Sense of Mathematics: An Introduction to the Van de Walle Professional Mathematics Series †
Examine how teaching through problem solving helps students make sense of mathematics. Participants explore three critical features and an explicit structure to better understand how student learning becomes a natural outcome of the problem-solving process.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Support simultaneous development of conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills.
- Identify instructional skills and strategies that make mathematical relationships between ideas, facts, and procedures in an intentional and public way.
- Support purposeful student struggle and identify common misconceptions as opportunities for student learning.
- Support mathematics learning for diverse student populations, including English language learners.
