Navigating 2015-16 Mathematics Standards: Teaching for Understanding with a Focus on Instruction and Assessment

1.  November  13, 2015

Title: Navigating 2015-2016 Mathematics Standards: Teaching for Understanding with a Focus on Instruction and Assessment  Important Beginnings

Grade Levels: K-2

Presenter: Eliza Leszczynski, Ed.D., K-12 Educational Consultant

Description:  Participants will engage in an across the grades look at the Domains of “Number and Operations in Base 10” and “Operations and Algebraic Thinking.” Ready-to-use, hands-on activities focusing on the development of a strong number sense and a deep understanding of operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with numbers and related applications in real contexts will be emphasized.  Participants will examine the structures of story problems and discuss student strategies occurring in the context of each problem type.

 

2.       January 14, 2016

Title: Navigating 2015-16 Mathematics Standards: Teaching for Understanding with a Focus on Instruction and Assessment ~ Fractions, Decimals and Percents

Grade Levels:  6-8
Presenter:  Eliza Leszczynski, Ed.D., K-12 Educational Consultant
Description: Come and participate in active learning about the many connections between fractions, decimals, and percents, with a focus on the across the grades look during a hands-on session.  The use of multiple representations and manipulatives for fractions, decimals, and percents will be emphasized, including number lines, fraction bars, 10x10 grids, base-10 blocks, and others.  Ready-to-use activities, including story problems will be examined.  The connections of percents and ratios will be addressed in the context of real life problems.
