GeoGebra does THAT? Using GeoGebra in Statistics and AP Statistics

GeoGebra does THAT? Using GeoGebra in Statistics and AP Statistics

Presented by: Steve Phelps

GeoGebra is widely used in math classes from Algebra I through Calculus. But, did you know that GeoGebra has a robust set of statistics tools that are just as easy to use? In this session, you will learn how GeoGebra can be used in Statistics and/or AP Statistics for exploratory data analysis, for creating dynamic data and regression displays, and for conducting inference procedures and simulations.

My Math Class My Family

My Math Class My Family

Presented by: Jonathan Claydon

I promise my students every year that their time in my math class will be their favorite part of the day. I never say why, I let the experiences speak for themselves. In my math classroom, students are greeted at the door and get a high five on the way out. They are free to commune with their peers, share a laugh, and get a lot of work done at the same time. In this session, I will explain a few of my classroom management techniques, goofy games, and school wide initiatives that have students begging for more math classes to take. These methods have been iterated on for the better part of 10 years. My math classroom is a second home for me and my students.

What Thinking Classrooms Look and Feel Like

What Thinking Classrooms Look and Feel Like

Presented by: Judy Larsen

As teachers, we make many choices in how we design our learning spaces. Ultimately, we want our students to think and engage in content deeply, actively, and autonomously. We want them to collaborate productively and question meaningfully. We want them to develop into capable citizens ready to learn and act flexibly and with reason. We don’t always see this in our rooms even when we try out the most exciting activities. Why is this so, and how can we build a space that occasions both individual and collective thinking in our classrooms? Dr. Peter Liljedahl has spent the past 15 years researching this in hundreds of classrooms, developing conditions we can use as teachers to occasion such spaces. In my work with him over the past number of years, I have experienced the fruit of his findings in not only my own teaching, but also in the teaching practices of many of my colleagues in whom I find both support and inspiration. The most transformative effect for me has beenfeeling the difference between when a classroom is thinking and when it isn’t. In this webinar, I will share examples and observations from a variety of classrooms, and we will think together about the implications and pragmatics that Dr. Liljedahl’s work can have on students.

Interactive Notebooks: Tapping into Left & Right Brain Thinking

Interactive Notebooks: Tapping into Left & Right Brain Thinking

Presented by: Kristina Barnaby

Interactive notebooks appeal to right and left-brain learners who crave organization. Students maintain these spirals with all their work inside: left-hand pages are used for homework while right-hand pages are used for class notes. In a sense, they create their own “text” with everything they need at their fingertips. Learn how to set up this notebook system, the pros and cons, and how to tailor them to your classroom.

Bringing Parents to the Table

Bringing Parents to the Table

Presented by: John Stevens

A major concern of mine is that all the work we are doing in our K-12 classrooms can only go far if we don’t build up the environment around our students. While we know that many parents project the “I suck at math” or “I’m not a math person” persona, there isn’t enough being done about it. In the short time we have together, my goal is to build some empathy and talk about possible steps towards bringing more parents to the table.

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.
