Upcoming Math Events

  • K-5 Math Summer Intervention- Math For Love


    Is your summer math program looking to...

    • Have students explore math playfully with lots of games and hands on experiences
    • Create an environment that is safe and promotes love for mathematics
    • Make student thinking and engagement the center of the math classroom

    Math For Love has been used as a summer and intervention program in many districts.  Learn how you can adapt this program to serve the students in your district.  

    “We created Math for Love to combine Play and Rigor, we play and learn the big ideas! Our target is the student who falls through the cracks:  kids behind grade level.  English-language learners, and possibly those who have started to associate school and especially math—as a place they want nothing to do with. Our goal was to craft an experience for them that would be: 

    • Positive, and get them excited to come to school!
    • Productive, helping them step up toward, to, or beyond grade level
    • Playful, to help them bring their autonomy and creativity to mathematics, and truly own the subject.” Dan Finkel-Curriculum Creator

  • Improving Discourse Through Mathematics


    Mathematical Language Routines 

    Students need abundant and diverse opportunities for speaking, listening, reading and writing.  Mathematical development requires students to take risks, construct meaning, and create representations.  This two day series will provide participants with supports for students to develop mathematics through immersion in language strategies.

    Key Activies Include: 

    • Strategies to get students to construct grade-appropriate oral and written claims and support them with reasoning and evidence;
    • Understand how to open up mathematics to engage all students and foster greater academic conversations;
    • Increase productive and receptive language through use of productive routines and rich mathematical tasks.
    • Make connections of Mathematical Practices to the English Language Proficiency Standards


    Day One:  June 24, 2019

    Day Two:  June 25, 2019


    Time:  8:00-3:00

    Location:  ESD 105 Yakima Room
