Designed to fundamentally change the way teachers think about math and how they teach their students, this relevant, engaging, 4-or 5-day institute brings Mathematical Habits of Mind to life. Through hands-on, research-based activities, teachers deepen their own content knowledge while learning how to develop students’ number sense, computation and problem solving skills, as well as their abilities to think and reason.
This full-day course provides leaders with insight into the structure and pedagogy of the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice and a vision for classroom implementation. Participants will learn what to look for during classroom observations to assess instruction in the “processes and proficiencies” outlined in the standards; as well as ways to support teachers as they begin to incorporate the standards into their classrooms. Participants may also observe a video lesson taught by a Math Solutions instructor that demonstrates instructional strategies around the practices.
Team coaching builds upon and enhances the knowledge and experience of your math leadership team and teachers to help them move beyond the theoretical so they may apply best teaching and student learning practices into the classroom.
Team Coaching creates a collaborative community of GO Math! educators, synchronizing groups of teachers across grade levels and/or across a district, to deepen content knowledge for teaching, share experiences, and build teaching expertise. Team Coaching may include: lesson modeling, which provides teachers with professional development before, during, and after lesson delivery in their own classrooms with their own students; planning for units of instruction or lessons; and examining student work to plan next steps.
This Leadership Overview highlights the reasoning behind the Math 180 strategy, provides videos from Math Solutions instructors, unpacks the learning progressions, and allows leaders to view interactive visual models, games, and more.
