  • High School Course: Developing Conceptual Understanding Through Productive Routines

    by

    Face to Face Workshop Option:  

    This workshop has a content focus on quadratic functions and a pedagogical focus on the implementation of instructional routines that promote mathematical reasoning and student discourse. Teachers will explore quadratic functions through rich tasks, and they will have the opportunity to experience, analyze, and learn to implement productive instructional routines and strategies that they can incorporate into their mathematics lessons and units.

     

    Participants will…

    • Engage in activities that promote students mathematical reasoning
    • Engage in activities that develop student discourse
    • Explore rich mathematical tasks that develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.

     

    Funding: 

    Each district will have funding through apportionment to cover costs for teachers to participate in this professional development.  Allowable use of funds includes:

    • Substitutes
    • Stipends (up to 6 hours)
