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

I learned a lot in this workshop. I feel like it was truly beneficial for me and my students. It pushed me out of my comfort zone sometimes, which allowed me to adjust my thinking in a positive way.
