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
