  • Math Model Drawing for Grades 3-8

     

    Making Problem Solving Comprehensible Through Tape Diagrams, Student Discourse and Connections to English Proficiency Standards

    Do your students struggle with solving story problems? In this workshop you will learn strategies to make abstract ideas more concrete and understandable through Model Drawing’s step by step approach of tape diagrams. This approach gives students explicit procedures to organize their ideas and provide visual models for deeper understanding.

  • Developing Language Through Operations and Algebraic Thinking K-2

     

    Developing Big Ideas for K-2nd Grade Students through Washington Learning Standards and English Language Proficiency Standards

    Algebraic reasoning for grades pre-K-2 involves forming generalizations from experiences with number and computation, formalizing these ideas using meaningful representations and symbols, and exploring the concepts of patterns in functions. During this two day workshop participants will explore the following topics:

    Study of Patterns and Their Relationships:

    Seeing Mathematical Situations and Structures:

    Describing Change Over Time:

  • Building Fractional Concepts and Computation Through Student Discourse Grades 5-6

     

    Developing Big Ideas for  5th and 6th  Grade Students through the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

    Fractions are important building blocks for higher level mathematics.  In this workshop participants will develop a deeper understanding of fractional concepts necessary to develop proficiency with operations with fractions, decimals and readiness for ratios and proportions.  Participants will then build on this understanding to computation with fractions as outlined in our Washington Learning Standards.  Within the two day workshop, strategies to develop receptive and productive language will be provided to advance students’ academic vocabulary and engagement of student discourse. 

    Date:              March 14th -15th, 2018
    Time:              8:30 AM-3:30 PM 
    Location:        Klickitat Room ESD 105
