Problem-Based Learning - Supporting Productive Struggle ›
Although there is not universal consensus on what mathematics content should be taught, there is consensus that whatever is taught should be taught with understanding. And, we know from research that there is an instructional model for teaching mathematics that helps all students build understanding. That model begins with selecting and implementing tasks or problems that elicit productive cognitive struggle. Productive struggle means students use reasoning and problem-solving processes to select, apply, and connect prior knowledge to new mathematical ideas; connecting prior knowledge to new ideas is the foundation for understanding. This session will illustrate the kind of instruction that elects cognitive struggle, it will illustrate signs that students are engaged in productive struggle, and it will illustrate ways teachers can support students in productive struggle.

On-Demand Author Webinar: Developing Conceptual Understanding: What, When, and How with Dr. Janet H. Caldwell ›
There are two ingredients for developing conceptual understanding: computational proficiency and problem-solving skills. But what is meant by this? In this webinar, we examine five instructional strategies that can help students develop conceptual understanding: Building Skills and Procedures from Concepts, Using Problem-Based Teaching, Using Multiple Representations, Focusing on Reasoning and Communication, and Helping Students Make Connections between Concepts. Within each strategy, we'll explore examples of concepts, illustrate how concepts develop over time through number concepts like place value, and we will uncover the important outcomes for teaching understanding.
