    • Ever wondered why thinking about functions can be so difficult for middle and high school math students? Find some answers in this 6 week course!

      Each week you will:

      -complete an independent online module (60-90 minutes)
      -In the online module, you will view video clips of middle and high school students solving function problems to learn more about how to help    students think about functions.
      -attend a virtual discussion via video conference (60 minutes)
      -In the virtual discussion, you will explore together with other secondary math teachers the best ways to help students understand functions.

    • This course provides an opportunity to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of number and operation and structures of algebraic thinking. Topics will include: meanings of operations and how they relate to one another, computation within the number system as a foundation for algebra, the use of mathematical models, and the understanding student thinking. Emphasis will be given to developing ideas about multiplicative thinking, proportional reasoning, and algebraic reasoning. Questions? This email address is being protected from spambots.

Now that you have completed the District 91 staff development on Facilitating Meaningful Math Discourse, do you find yourself wanting to know more? In this class we will take a deeper dive into how to have successful discussions that support student learning. We will work with five concrete steps for planning and carrying out a math lesson rich with discussion (from the work of Stein and Smith in “5 Practices for Orchestrating Mathematical Discussions”). We will also apply strategies from the Facilitating Meaningful Math Discourse class to everyday routines and MIF lessons. There will also be time set aside to plan lessons with emphasis on discussion that support students’ understanding.

Saturday, February 9th (8:30 – 11:30)
Wednesdays, February 20, 27, March 6, March 13 (4 -6 pm each week)
Saturday, March 30 (8:30 – 11:30)

Please join us for our Saturday Series workshops October 13, 2018 and February 23, 2019 In Idaho Falls.FocusMathematical 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.
