This workshop will help teachers become comfortable using the Hands-On Equations teaching system to present essential algebraic concepts to all students in grades 4 to 9. Hands-on Equations is a visual and kinesthetic approach which provides students with opportunities to be successful by removing the abstractness of algebra and making it into a game-like activity. This system connects directly to the 8 Mathematical Practice Standards from Common Core. When used appropriately, the lessons connect to problem solving, modeling, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, looking at the structure of problems and repeated reasoning. Hands-on Equations does not require any algebraic pre-requisite skills and is a valuable method to use in the traditional pre-algebra classroom. It provides students with a firm foundation for more difficult concepts in high school algebra classes. More

CGI

CGI is a problem-solving mathematics program designed to improve number sense and computation for students in Kindergarten through fourth grades. This instructional practice is closely aligned to the 8 Mathematical Practice Standards from the Common Core State Standards. It has been proven effective for boys and girls of diverse social class, racial and ethnic, and language proficiency backgrounds. Participation will be limited to 30 participants. NCTM past president, Mary Lindquist, describe the impact of CGI, "In recognizing how students develop mathematically, you may find yourself asking questions ... You will begin to rethink who can learn mathematics and what it means to learn mathematics ... You will begin to rethink how you teach mathematics..." (Carpenter et al, 1999) More

Join Tammy and Renee' and experience a day of math learning activities aligned to the common core. Participants will experience quality math tasks and reflect on the connection to the 8 Mathematical Practices. The critical areas that will be addressed are numbers and operations in base ten, numbers and operations in fractions, algebraic reasoning, and geometry. Teachers will receive pre-made stations for their grade band that are ready for immediate use in the classroom. If you have technology available please bring an iPad or laptop to the workshop with you. More

In this two-day workshop PreK- 2 teachers will be exposed to the building blocks necessary for a child to develop true number sense. The focus is to provide all teachers with the understanding of the building blocks of number sense, appropriate lessons to address each building block, and a diagnostic tool in which to measure students' number sense. With an emphasis on early numeracy and the language of mathematics this class would benefit all teachers including those with ESL students. Teachers of older students who are involved in MTSS interventions would also benefit from the knowledge of these building blocks for use with students who are behind in mathematics. More

"Fractions both underpin the development of proportional reasoning and are important for future mathematics study, including that of algebra and probability." However, fractions remain one of the key stumbling blocks in math education. This two day workshop will provide teachers, who are already familiar with the CGI strategy, with the understanding necessary to identify the stepping stones in developing fractions and decimals. Information from the newest piece of research, Extending Children's Mathematics: Fractions & Decimals: Innovations In Cognitively Guided Instruction will be shared. Empson and Levi lay a foundation for understanding fractions and decimals in ways that build conceptual learning. They show how the same kinds of intuitive knowledge and sense making that provides the basis for children's learning of whole number arithmetic can be extended to fractions and decimals. Appropriate activities and lessons to increase students' fraction sense will be explored. Grade level 2-6. Previous work with CGI recommended. More
