Framing Mathematics Instruction With The TQE Process – Thomasenia Lott Adams

Attendees will be introduced to the TQE process and how it can be used to frame mathematics instruction with (1) TASKS that promote thinking, prompt discourse, and reveal misconceptions, (2) QUESTIONS that advance understanding and uncover errors, and (3) EVIDENCE that inform formative assessment. The session will be supported by a shared image of mathematics instruction. Presented by Thomasenia Lott Adams.

Part Art, Part Engineering, Part Brute Force: The Im Oer Curriculum – Kristen Umland

After writing or curating 2,000 K-12 tasks and course blueprints, Illustrative Mathematics decided to try writing a fully formed curriculum. What were our guiding principles? How did we translate those lofty ideals into concrete lesson plans? What did we learn from the craziest year and a half of our lives? And how can this all be illustrated through the example of a number talk? Join us for these musings. Presented by Kristin Umland.

Unpacking Fractions: Moving from Senseless Rote to Sense Making & Joy – Dr. Monica Neagoy

Students’ love for mathematics ends when they surrender sense making and yield to senseless memorization. Through powerful examples, the webinar explores: reasons for the difficulty, insights into sound pedagogy, engaging tasks, interactive fraction apps, and bridges to the future. Presented by Dr. Monica Neagoy.

Everyday Formative Assessment that Transforms Teaching and Learning – Beth Kobett

This presentation will engage participants in considering how everyday use of formative assessment, in-the-moment classroom-based assessment techniques (observations, interviews, Show Me, hinge questions, exit tasks), directly influence and empower teacher planning and instruction AND impact student achievement!

Mathematical Modeling in School Mathematics: It’s about Knowing the Givens and the Chosens – Rose Mary Zbiek

Even if we give students the very best mathematical modeling problems, we are not necessarily teaching students to be good mathematical modelers. Mathematical modeling requires making choices, and teaching mathematical modeling requires knowing the choices to be made and teaching students how to be, well, choosy. We will make explicit the little and not so little things we can do every day to help students learn how to make choices that matter when modeling.

Targeting Math Discussions – Christine Newell

Number talks are powerful tools for building students’ mathematical thinking, fluency and discourse, but there’s more to them than just show and tell. Leverage your talks: analyze and use student strategies shared during number talks to plan and lead targeted follow-up discussions that reengage students in their mathematical thinking.
