In this course, participants:

  • examine each of the four operations, their properties and the relationships among them 
  • consider how knowledge of place value and the base 10 number system is foundational to the development of accurate, efficient and flexible computation strategies 
  • explore the properties of operations and consider ways in which these properties support the development of computational fluency
  • consider how generalizations about operations support and deepen a student’s understanding of each operation 
  • analyze student thinking and solutions via videos and student work samples

“I have taught school 40 years. I have attended numerous workshops. This workshop has been the most productive/ helpful one I have ever attended.”
