In This Course, Participants…

  • consider the use of representations, models, and contexts that help students attach meaning to the properties of operations, build readiness for algebra, and achieve computational fluency
  • use place value understanding and properties of operations to solve multi-digit arithmetic problems
  • look closely at ways in which strategies for the four operations develop across the elementary grades
  • examine how students describe, analyze, and compare strategies so they can efficiently and flexibly solve more complex problems
  • develop and examine their own computational strategies
  • focus on ways to support students as they enact the Mathematical Practices to ensure that they become mathematically proficient
  • analyze student thinking through classroom videos, readings, and interactive demonstrations
  • see the connections between the Standards for Mathematical Practices and the domain of Number and Operations in Base Ten in the CCSS

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