Did you know future success in math and reading is tied closely to spatial reasoning skills? Come explore and play with the key mathematical ideas involved in geometry and measurement. We will make connections among geometry, measurement and number and operations. Your spatial reasoning will change, expand and deepen throughout this interactive course. While working with the key ideas in geometry and measurement we’ll consider how those ideas are manifest in our classrooms. In addition we’ll relate how these key ideas play out with our students’ spatial reasoning.

Please join us for our Saturday Series workshops October 13, 2018 and February 23, 2019 In Idaho Falls.Focus: Mathematical discourse is the norm among students and focuses on understanding mathematical ideas and concepts. We have highlighted four (2 each Saturday) strategies to help enrich the math discussions in your classrooms. How do you draw students out? How do you help develop their math thinking and be able to communicate it? These strategies will help any K-12 teacher, whether you're a beginner at facilitating discussion or more experienced.
See you there!
