Investigations 3 in the K-5 Classroom

In this four-day workshop, participants learn about the content and pedagogy of Investigations 3. Morning sessions focus on key mathematical concepts K-5 and consider how to support student learning. Each afternoon, participants work in grade-level bands to examine math content and features of the curriculum specific to their grade level. 

In This Workshop, Participants…

  • Examine how the teaching and learning of important math ideas progresses K-5 in Investigations 3.
  • Explore how students’ developing understandings of counting, place value, and the operations intertwine, and help them solve problems.
  • Work with the representations and contexts that students use to make sense of the base ten number system and the operations.
  • Learn about 2-D geometry and measurement and how they connect to ideas in number and computation.
  • Work with models and representations that support students’ understanding of fractions.
  • Examine videos of Investigations classrooms in action and analyze student work.
  • Focus on math content and features of the curriculum in daily grade-band sessions.
