Developing Mathematical Roots: Promoting a Mathematics Culture Across the Curriculum (Part 1)
Limited Capacity seats available

Join us for an interactive, strategy-packed session to learn how to plant mathematical seeds across the curriculum that will yield deeply rooted mathematical thinkers. Through this session, participants will establish strategies to promote a mathematics culture within (part 1) and outside of (part 2) the math classroom. In the first part of the session, participants will learn more about incorporating children's literature, alternative assessments, number routines, and math talk. In the second part of the session, participants will be able to explore un-morning work, un-homework, math management strategies, and content integration as a means to continue developing mathematical thinking outside of the math classroom. Not only will participants walk away with ready to implement mathematical strategies, but you will also fill your teacher toolbox with strategies that may be used across the curriculum. All participants will have access to a Google Drive folder filled with ready to use materials to help promote a mathematics culture.

4 Simple Rules for Teaching Mathematics (P-12+)
Limited Capacity seats available

This "post-Common Core" era may seem confusing and overwhelming for those who teach mathematics. We're told to be more student-centered, but are expected to help students dig deeper while promoting higher-order thinking skills. Understanding must come first, but fluency is still a necessity. We distinguish between skills that are essential and those that are nice to know- but all of them may still be on The Test. Meanwhile, we're having to push ourselves to teach in ways that are different from those in our own P-12 experience, and fend off parents and others who question our work.

In this session, we'll examine policy-based approaches, research foundations, and evidence-based strategies that boil down to just four simple rules to guide our work in the mathematics classroom. Participants will leave with (a) a full understanding of what's behind the rules, (b) the ability to recite the rules and explain how they apply to their own classrooms, and (c) a mini-poster of the rules (just in case!).
