 Sep 27, 2018 4:00 PM EST Developing Conceptual Understanding: What, When, and How › 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. Mathematical Modeling Grades 6-12: Engage your reluctant learners! › Show in My Time Zone This session is geared for grade 6-12 math teachers. Dive into unique modeling lessons that present engaging, high-interest situations. Unlike traditional real-world problems, reality-based Mathematical Modeling lessons present students with the modeling conceptual category. Mathematics standards require that students identify essential variables in a situation, formulate a model from those variables, perform operations using the model, interpret the results of those operations, and validate the conclusions of those results.

Counting: More than Just "1,2,3..." › Counting is more than memorization, more than one-to-one correspondence, and more than procedural skills. In this webinar, Dr. Juanita Copley will examine five principles for cardinality and counting.

 On-Demand Author Webinar: Nothing But Desmos with Dr. Eric Milou › Come enjoy this webinar on the free online graphing calculator Desmos. Dr. Eric Milou will explore all of Desmos’ features, from animating objects and functions to creating lessons and assessments, and even exploring the link between art and math. Yes, Assessment Should Guide YOUR Mathematics Planning and Teaching: The Formative 5 › This webinar will consider issues and challenges relative to everyday use of formative assessment in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Eric Milou - Conceptual Understanding and Exploration in Mathematics via Desmos › Desmos, a free online math tool, is currently making waves in classrooms by breaking down concepts, providing feedback, and promoting data collections and collaboration. Join us to learn how this tool can enhance mathematical proficiency in your classroom. Author Webinar: Zak Champagne - Listening to Your Math Students › Genuinely listening to students can yield incredible opportunities for us to increase the quality of teaching and learning that happens in our mathematics classrooms. Join us as we explore the power of listening to students and using that information to inform our instruction. We’ll explore some mathematical ideas as learners and explore videos of students in K-8 classrooms to consider the mathematical opportunities each situation may afford us. Author Webinar: Stuart Murphy - Visual Math Strategies › Are your students having trouble grasping that new math concept? Visual learning strategies may provide the help they need. Research shows that when children are able to “see” the math, they are more likely to understand the concept and apply it to other situations. Pearson System of Courses - Math Curriculum › The Pearson System of Courses is a vertically and horizontally aligned system that supports student learning, motivation, and engagement. Author Webinar - Dr. Eric Milou - Using Digital Math Tools to Facilitate Student Learning and Engagement in the High School Math Classroom › Have you ever wondered the best ways for digital math tools to foster deeper student understanding of high school math concepts? Dr. Eric Milou will explore how digital tools can change the very nature of school mathematics by actively engaging students in mathematical practices like experimenting and investigating. Learn how digital tools can encourage students to ask questions, rather than just look for answers. Participants will get a close look at digital tools and strategies that they can use to lead students to deeper mathematical understanding and put to use in their classrooms immediately.
