Geogebra: It’s Really That Easy

Geogebra: It’s Really That Easy

Presented by: Steve Phelps, Jen Silverman, Tim Brzezinski

Join us for an introduction to GeoGebra’s new Graphing Calculator, Geometry, and 3D Graphing Calculator apps.  During this GMD webinar, you will learn how to get started with these low-floor, no-ceiling apps; where to go for support; and how to search for ready-made materials. You’ll feel confident using the new GeoGebra apps with your students the very next day, because, yes… it’s really that easy.

Equitable Teaching Strategies: The Keys to Students’ Mathematical Reasoning and Sense Making

Equitable Teaching Strategies: The Keys to Students’ Mathematical Reasoning and Sense Making

Presented by: Marilyn Strutchens

In this session, we will focus on strategies that have been shown to help each and every student reason and make sense of mathematics. We will examine vignettes, video clips, and student responses to problems situated in a variety of contexts. At least nine equitable teaching strategies will be discussed.

Talk Number 2 Me: The Ratio Table

Talk Number 2 Me: The Ratio Table

Presented by: Christina Moore

The ratio table is a powerful tool for students to shift from additive thinking to multiplicative, master the distributive property, partial products/quotients, and proportional reasoning by exploring multiplication/division/fraction real world problems, crafting multiple solutions within contexts, and providing proofs of students’ own thinking.

Reflecting Before, During, and After Solving a Problem

Reflecting Before, During, and After Solving a Problem

Presented by: Avery Pickford

Student reflection is often limited to after they “finish” something. At the same time, research shows that one quality that distinguishes novice and expert mathematicians is that experts are good at reflecting throughout the process of working on a problem. Come learn about some strategies and structures I use to get my students to reflect before, during, and after solving problems.

Being Equity-Minded in the Teaching of Mathematics

Being Equity-Minded in the Teaching of Mathematics

Talk by: Darryl Yung

Even though we might give the same set of instructions or deploy the same activity to a group of students, each student will experience it in a different way because of their different lived experiences and ever-present inequities in our society. That’s an aspect of teaching that is simultaneously wonderful, fascinating, and frustrating! How can we teach in a way that allows every student to flourish, particularly when our actions and decisions can have unintended consequences that affect the way our students experience our classrooms? Being equity-minded is a habit of mind that can help us to deepen our own awareness about the experiences of others and to be aware of inequities that exist in our classroom. We’ll discuss equity-mindedness in the context of common practices and decisions that take place in the mathematics classroom.

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity as Resources for Mathematics Teaching and Learning

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity as Resources for Mathematics Teaching and Learning

This presentation centers the idea of diversity as a resource for mathematics teaching and learning. The focus is on how to build on the diversity present in our classrooms (in particular, language and cultural diversity) to enhance the mathematics learning opportunities for all of us (teachers, students, and parents). I will discuss the concept of valorization of knowledge and how that may affect how we interact with diversity in the classroom. Presented by Marta Civil.

Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers

Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers

How do we design high-quality curriculum that supports students and their teachers seeing themselves as sense-makers, not mistake-makers? David will share effective teaching practices embedded in curriculum that allow all students to make mathematical connections. We will also discuss as a group how to embed features that are educative for teachers, so that the use of curriculum can lead to both student and teacher learning. Another critical goal of our curriculum work is to develop curriculum that explicitly aims to be responsive to student ideas and which includes instructional supports that give all students access to the mathematics through supporting students and teachers in having authentic mathematical discussions. In the presentation, participants will learn how those supports have been embedded within our curriculum through the use of instructional routines. Our assumption in the design of our curriculum work: It is possible for all students to learn, given appropriate support. Presented by David Wees
