Meaningful Mathematics: Geometry

Date: Apr 19, 2017 - Apr 20, 2017

Time: 8:30 - 3:30 CDT

Location: GRREC Office and Training Facility

Presenters: ,

Cost: GRECC members: $50.00, Non-GRECC members: $50.00

Description:

GRREC is pleased to present Meaningful Mathematics: Geometry for 6-8 educators of mathematics. This learning experience provides a deep study of the Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) of mathematics with a focus on the Standards for Mathematical Practice and Vertical Progressions of geometry. We will explore strategies using a variety of tools and approaches that will support the development of a culture that fosters a love of learning mathematics.  This professional learning was developed to support teachers in meeting the needs of all students with a focus on struggling math learners.

Learning Targets:

  • Experience and learn strategies that will deepen content knowledge and pedagogy
  • Learn strategies for developing a culture that fosters a love of learning mathematics

Igniting Mathematical Thinking in the Intermediate Classroom

Date: Jun 21, 2017 - Jun 21, 2017

Time: 8:30 - 3:30 CT

Location: GRREC Office and Training Facility

Presenters: Kim Estes, GRREC Math Consultant

Cost: GRECC members: $250.00, Non-GRECC members: $500.00

Description:

Getting students engaged in mathematics can be challenging.  Getting students to think mathematically can be even more challenging!  Join Mathematics Instructional Specialists, Sheri Brittenham and Kim Estes, along with Educational Technology Consultant, Terri Stice as they model strategies for igniting the mathematical thinking in your students. This informative series of workshops is designed to provide participants with tools to help students think through and make sense of the math, develop mathematical literacy, or numeracy, and help students learn to generate questions to monitor and repair understanding, predict and infer, reason with numbers, and become numerate thinkers. The effective use of technology will allow the learners opportunities to make their thinking visible. 

During this institute, participants will:

  • Gain foundational knowledge of strategies to raise student comprehension in math
  • Experience student-centered tasks with embedded strategies to promote mathematical thinking
  • Learn to utilize technology to deepen learning experiences
  • Acquire practical ways to incorporate thinking strategies into their classrooms
  • Leave with sample lessons and answers to the question, “How can I do this in my math class…tomorrow?”
