Who should attend: All Math Educators Grades 2-5, including Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Coaches in the grade levels.
The sessions will give educators in Grades 2-5 an opportunity to explore:
- Their own mathematical content knowledge and problem-solving habits of mind.
- The Landscape of Learning, which is comprised of the foundational big ideas in multiplication and how these are directly related to and build upon students’ understanding of multiplication.
- The role of images in developing early multiplicative reasoning.
- The role of mathematical models (e.g., the bead string, the open number line, the ratio table) to build the foundation of multiplicative reasoning.
- Different kinds of multiplication problems using specific multiplication models (e.g., grouping, ratio, area).
- How to incorporate the CCSS Mathematical Practices through talk moves.
- Assessment tools to track student learning in multiplication.
- Video examples of key multiplication lessons.
Participants will leave with:
- A clear understanding of the Landscape of Learning (a developmental trajectory to help educators assess student reasoning in number).
- A repertoire of rich tasks that can be used to differentiate learning.
- Samples of images that can be used to develop conceptual understanding of big ideas and strategies related to multiplication.
Specific assessments that can be used to examine students’ understanding of multiplication.
