Coaches/Leaders/Teacher Educators Session

While contemporary standards aim to keep the “content” current and relevant, we also need to remain true to the “intent” of those standards by honestly addressing the way we teach the math. This session will draw from studies, and from what we know works in English-speaking countries that outperform the U.S., to rationalize a change for good!

Exhibit Hall A3, Connecticut Convention Center

Unpacking Mathematical Operations: Addition and Subtraction

Grades Pre-K–2 Session

I don’t get what they want me to do! Support students solving word problems by exploring the meanings of addition and subtraction as operations. As students learn the “jobs” of each operation, they recognize situations and create representations. Students are empowered to better understand word problems and to mathematize real-world situations.

Presented by Sara Delano Moore/Kimberly Morrow-Leong

Early Geometry Concepts: Making Connections to the Real World

Click here to download the Powerpoint from this session.

Grades Pre-K–2 Workshop

Young children are active investigators of their world. Learning about space and shape helps them make sense of the world around them and lays the foundation for understanding geometry. Children develop this knowledge through experiences with playful hands-on activities and being immersed in a language-rich environment. Come join in on the fun!

Grades Pre-K–2 Session

A child’s innate sense to learn is through the act of play. Why not use the Standards for Mathematical Practice to exploit, utilize, and facilitate intentional play through valuable mathematic instruction? In this workshop, you will learn developmentally appropriate ways to employ the SMPs, and how to ignite the passion for learning!
