Students must learn mathematics with understanding, actively building new knowledge from experiences and prior knowledge. Participants will evaluate the reasonableness of solutions to application problems focusing on Measurement, Geometry and Spatial Reasoning, and data. They will explore estimation and accuracy, and formulas in perimeter and area.
This workshop will focus on the following topics:
- Measurement, Geometry and Spatial Reasoning, and Data
- Develop and use Effective Questioning Strategies during instructions
Participants will work on activities and instructional strategies that will advance their teaching skills and help you promote mathematical proficiency in their students. They will evaluate the supporting and readiness standards, given the opportunity to work cooperatively in developing mathematical concepts concretely to build understanding and then abstractly to apply information for problem solving. This strategy will assist teachers in addressing the unique learning styles of many students in their classroom. The participants will be given opportunities to explore mathematical relationships, develop skills and communicate their ideas through multiple representations.
