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.
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.
