This one-day institute and one-day Teaching Learning Community (TLC) is designed to facilitate student understanding of mathematical relationships and big ideas that are typically experienced by students as abstract, nonsensical, and complex. When used appropriately, visuals and technology help move students beyond mindless computing. Carefully designed visuals or technology apps help students see underlying structures and internalize critical mathematical ideas that are essential to their educational success as they progress through high school and into college mathematics.

The follow-up TLC provides participants an opportunity to spend time in a real classroom to enact the planning, co-taught implementation, and reflection of the use of visual tools in secondary classrooms.

This workshop will provide secondary educators an opportunity to:

  • Learn about the effective use of visual tools to help students see mathematical relationships and utilize these structures fluently.
  • Explore a variety of free-use tech and non-technology models and tools.
  • Experience ways in which visual tools and models can promote the development of mathematical habits of mind and the Common Core Mathematical Practices.
  • Learn about routines and pedagogy related to teaching with visual tools.

Participants will leave with:

  • A clearer understanding of the importance of incorporating the meaningful use of visual tools to teach mathematics.
  • Visual activities that are both non-tech and technology based to use in their own classrooms.
  • Routines and instructional moves related to teaching with visual tools.
  • Strategies for incorporating technology into their lessons.
  • Additional technology resources they might want to consider.
