Building Human Themes into your Teaching of Math – 2/11/20

Building Human Themes into your Teaching of Math

 Presented by: Francis Su

Presented on: February 11, 2020

Doing mathematical work sometimes feels like drudgery, and that’s often because we’ve taken ‘real math’ out of math homework. Mathematics isn’t memorization or calculation (though those can be helpful to do doing math)… rather, math is exploration, and that’s a deep human desire we all have. Students will be more motivated to learn mathematics if you appeal to their basic human desires, such as: for exploration, for play, for beauty, for truth, for struggle, for community. We’ll explore practical ways to build human themes into the teaching of mathematics. Bring one example of a lesson or a homework that you’d like to modify.

Meeting the Need of Introverts in the Collaborative Classroom – 2/4/20

Meeting the Need of Introverts in the Collaborative Classroom

Presented by: Megan Dubee

Presented on: February 4, 2020

The rise of classroom collaboration turned rows into pods, lecture into cooperative learning, and individuals into teams. Despite the many benefits of collaborative classrooms, some students’ needs are not being met. Motivated by Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, we will explore strategies to increase classroom inclusivity by creating a space where students feel empowered to participate in ways aligned with their personalities and challenged to take risks in their learning.

Using Desmos’ Snapshots Tool to Deepen Equitable Classroom Discourse – 1/28/20

Using Desmos’ Snapshots Tool to Deepen Equitable Classroom Discourse

 Presented by: Allison Krasnow

Presented on: January 28, 2020

This workshop will explore how to integrate Desmos’ Snapshots tool with any curriculum to deepen discourse, differentiation and formative assessment. We’ll examine how to amplify every student’s voice in a classroom to create more equitable participation. The 5 practices for productive mathematical discussion include: anticipating, monitoring, selecting, sequencing, and connecting. Using Desmos’ Snapshots tool, you can develop a more robust understanding of how to infuse these 5 practices into any lesson.

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.)

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.

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.
