Breathing Life Into Geometry with Coding – 1/21/20

Breathing Life Into Geometry with Coding

 Presented by: Mike Larson and Ashley Goetz

Presented on: January 21, 2020

Writing computer programs is an artistic way to bring geometry standards to life! Although it can seem daunting to teachers who don’t have experience in computer science, we will teach you the basics and you will leave with ready to use lessons that we have implemented in our math classrooms. So join us and bring this career-ready literacy to your students using Scratch and Beetleblocks. Lessons: Playful Polygons, Code-necting the Dots,The Math Behind Coordinate Animation, Solids of Extrusion, Solids of Revolution

Recommended Grade Level: 6-12

Up for Debate! Exploring Math Through Arguments – 1/14/20

Up for Debate! Exploring Math Through Arguments

 Presented by: Chris Luzinak

Presented on: January 14, 2020

Imagine: Debate, often a humanities staple, as an integral part of your math classes. Debate activities have been proven to increase student achievement and understanding. So let’s explore ways to incorporate debates into everyday math lessons, from warm-ups to projects! In this webinar, we will develop short activities and routines for building a classroom culture where students are empowered to discuss and debate mathematics–tomorrow! (Note: The podcast is split into two parts due to file size constraints.)

Recommended Grade Level: 6-12

Proportional Reasoning Using a Double Number Line – 1/7/20

Proportional Reasoning Using a Double Number Line

 Presented by: Christine Lenghaus

Presented on: January 7, 2020

To think proportionally or not to think proportionally is that the question? Is everything relative? How can we scaffold proportional thinking beyond ratio tables or ‘cross multiply’ by using a double number line? In this session I will share my journey with moving students from multiplicative thinking to proportional reasoning.

Math Play with a Purpose

Math Play with a Purpose

Presented by: David Coffey
Presented on December 10, 2019
Games are an effective way to engage students in learning. In this session, participants will consider ways to support the development of emerging mathematicians through purposeful play. The focus will be on the Mathematical Practices and the content domain of Number and Operations. However, the principles that we will address can be applied to any content and any grade.
Recommended Grade Level: 3-8

Mathacognition

Mathacognition

Presented by: Adam Yankay

Presented on December 3, 2019

We are more than the givers and takers of tests. “Mathacognition” is an exercise embedded in a pedagogy dedicated to developing the whole learner in your classroom. Mathacognition helps students articulate their emotional associations and goals with math class, identify helpful and impeding habits, advocate for themselves, and self-evaluate. In this session I will share my inspiration for developing Mathacognition, some wins and losses using it over the past few years, and the prompts I’ve been using this year that have helped my students believe that in my class they are more than merely the solvers of math problems.

Recommended Grade Level: 7-12
