Building Meaningful And Effective Stem Projects

Once students step beyond the walls of the school, they rarely tackle challenges with clear labels like “Math” and “Science.” Working to craft curriculum that integrates work across multiple disciplines and focuses students on products with visible impact will help prepare them better for the demands of the 21st century workforce, while also pushing them to more robust higher order thinking in discipline-specific academic contexts. Building such a curriculum can be an overwhelming task, but this webinar will offer you easy inroads and strategies to build projects from the ground up. Learn how to identify collaborators, coordinate schedules, correlate projects with existing standards, and much more! Presented by Zach Strother.

Unlocking The Hidden Mathematics In Video Games

What can IPhone games teach us about economics? What can LittleBigPlanet teach us about reforming our voting systems? What can The Sims teach us about our relationships? When you’re playing games, mathematics probably isn’t the first thing on your mind. But there’s rich mathematical thinking in many of the most popular games games, even those that aren’t explicitly billed as educational. In this talk, we’ll play some games, learn about some others, and explore examples of mathematics in games that don’t typically come to mind when thinking about education.

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.
