Stand and Talks

Stand and Talks

Presented by: Sara VanDerWerf

One of the best things I ever started doing in my classroom was daily ‘Stand & Talks’, a twist on turn and talks, to engage every single student in talking about mathematics every single day in my classroom. Learn how to start using this routine in your classroom to engage your students. What you give students to talk about is critical so we will also look at the lens teachers bring to planning a stand & talk. In addition we will touch on where to find resources so that you can start using this routine in your classroom tomorrow. This routine is not specific to a text or grade.

What’s Going on in This Graph?

What’s Going on in This Graph?

Presented by: Sharon Hessney

“What’s Going On In This Graph?” (WGOITGraph?) is what we math-types automatically ask ourselves when we see a graph of interest. But, do our students have this curiosity? Probably not. WGOITGraph?, a weekly, free online feature of the New York Times Learning Network, asks students “What do we notice?” and “What do we wonder?” about a timely graph that they can recognize themselves in. (You may know this as Annie Fetter’s math problem-solving strategy.) WGOITGraph? is for grades 7 – 12 and beyond. It is used in not only math, but also humanities and science class. With a very low floor and very high ceiling, all students engage and benefit.

WGOITGraph? is released weekly on Thursday with math teachers live moderating 9 am – 2 pm ET on the following Wednesday. Then, we reveal the article, additional questions, and Stat Nuggets.

WGOITGraph? can be used in class or as homework. WGOITGraph? expects no teacher prep or statistical background.

We will notice and wonder about some graphs. Then, we will share our catchy headlines. We will discuss best practices. Guaranteed that you’ll still be thinking about the graphs once we are done.

Digital math workflow FTW with Desmos, EquatIO, and Google (Post 2)

Digital math workflow FTW with Desmos, EquatIO, and Google

Presented by: John McGowan

There are a ton of great resources…Word Docs, PDFs, Google Docs, textbooks, test banks, etc…and you want to merge them to include Desmos, Google’s GSuite. You also want faster & more effective feedback, accessibility, and deeper student understanding & engagement driven by student choice and response preferences. We will talk about some of the ways you can do this with the help of EquatIO!

The Best Algebraic Reasoning Tool You’ve Never Heard of (or Story Tables 101)

The Best Algebraic Reasoning Tool You’ve Never Heard of (or Story Tables 101)

Presented by: Shira Helft

If math is a toolbox, we often fill it with lots of one-use gizmos that students half-master. Teachers are already starting to replace these with fewer, more powerful tools (like the area model). In this session, we will get to know one versatile tool — the story table — that has transformed how I teach Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus. Come ready to do some sense making!

How to use DeltaMath to Enhance Mastery

How to use DeltaMath to Enhance Mastery

Presented by: ZacK Korzyk

Delta Math is a free website for teachers and students covering a wide range of math content from middle school through AP Calculus. There are over 1,200 problem types that the teacher can add to assignments for students to complete. All problems are automatically graded and students get instant feedback. There are unlimited problems of each type so students can practice and see examples until they develop mastery. You will be able to see some of my favorite modules, best practices for keeping students motivated, and also beginner topics such as how to make an account, register students, create assignments and look at student data.

Host: Paula Torres

Improving Student Discourse Through Debate in the Math Classroom

Improving Student Discourse Through Debate in the Math Classroom

Presented by: Ethan Weker

In the Standards of Mathematical Practice, Math Practice 3 states that students should be able to “Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others”. However, to do so requires a lot of modeling, structure, and practice. Debates can be a great vehicle to achieve these goals in a manner that gives all students a voice and an opportunity to develop and communicate their ideas and hear the ideas of their peers. Learn about how a variety of informal and formal debate formats can be used on a daily basis to get every one of your students speaking with greater frequency and more confidence.

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.
