Embracing Mathematical Problem Solving Grades 3-4 - A 2-Day Series

February 26, 2024 & April 5, 2024
9:00 -11:00AM & 1:00 - 3:00PM

Many teachers of younger elementary students feel a responsibility to set up procedures and techniques to show students how to operate in mathematics to get these students started on the right path.
But maybe we build a more solid foundation if, instead, we encourage a culture where the norm is to try yourself, figure things out with peers, and to experiment in problem-solving situations.
Let’s explore ways to build curiosity, stamina, and sense making in mathematics in working on both situational problems and other interesting mathematical problems.

Embracing Mathematical Problem Solving Grades 5-6 - A 2-Day Series

February 27, 2024 & April 15, 2024
9:00 -11:00AM & 1:00 - 3:00PM

How do we help students embrace problem solving in math, rather than dreading that part of  our programs? Student reactions to being asked to solve problems depends a lot on the culture we set in our rooms about what doing math really is, how important collaboration in math is, and how acceptable it is to experiment with mathematical ideas when you’re just not sure.
