Cultural and Linguistic Diversity as Resources for Mathematics Teaching and Learning

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity as Resources for Mathematics Teaching and Learning

This presentation centers the idea of diversity as a resource for mathematics teaching and learning. The focus is on how to build on the diversity present in our classrooms (in particular, language and cultural diversity) to enhance the mathematics learning opportunities for all of us (teachers, students, and parents). I will discuss the concept of valorization of knowledge and how that may affect how we interact with diversity in the classroom. Presented by Marta Civil.

Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers

Designing Curriculum That Treats Students as Sense-Makers

How do we design high-quality curriculum that supports students and their teachers seeing themselves as sense-makers, not mistake-makers? David will share effective teaching practices embedded in curriculum that allow all students to make mathematical connections. We will also discuss as a group how to embed features that are educative for teachers, so that the use of curriculum can lead to both student and teacher learning. Another critical goal of our curriculum work is to develop curriculum that explicitly aims to be responsive to student ideas and which includes instructional supports that give all students access to the mathematics through supporting students and teachers in having authentic mathematical discussions. In the presentation, participants will learn how those supports have been embedded within our curriculum through the use of instructional routines. Our assumption in the design of our curriculum work: It is possible for all students to learn, given appropriate support. Presented by David Wees

Exploring Black Feminist Math Pedagogy As Intersectional Intervention

Dr. Nicole Joseph introduces a new developing idea related to Black women and girls and mathematics achievement. Specifically, she unpacks a new intersectional intervention that she has coined Black Feminist Mathematics Pedagogy or BlackFMP. BlackFMP is a Black women or girl-centered approach to mathematics teaching in which her intersectional identities are identified, acknowledged and nurtured to promote critical consciousness, robust mathematics identities and high levels of mathematics achievement. Participants use BlackFMP to explore and think though an example.

What Comes Next: The Creative Power Of Visual Patterns

Visual patterns offer a rich context for making meaningful connections between representations. Come learn best practices for facilitating class discussions around these delightfully engaging visual prompts. We’ll do some math, discuss some pedagogy, and close with a series of questions that put a creative spin on these tried-and-true tasks. Presented by Michael Fenton.

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.
