Seminar Short DescJoin teachers from around the region for this 3-day training as we welcome a guest speaker to talk about 3 Act Math Tasks and as we discuss curriculum alignment, data, and instructional best practices in mathematics.
Seminar Full DescMany educators have been asked to teach fractions through conceptual understanding. The problem with a conceptual approach is that many of us were taught fractions through rules, tricks, and gimmicks. in this session, we will identify the tricks we use, unpack why these tricks work, and explore how we can help build an understanding of fractions in our students that is sustainable and scalable.
