In this full-day, six-hour session, participants take a closer look at fundamental mathematics. The session showcases the coherence of addition and subtraction as participants explore how those operations develop in Grades K–2. Participants study Problem Sets, analyze teaching sequences, deliver lesson segments, practice fluency activities, and model with mathematics. The use of linking cubes, number bonds, 5-group drawings, the Rekenrek, place value charts, Hide Zero cards, tape diagrams, and unit language supports participants in making connections that help them develop students’ understanding of addition and subtraction with whole numbers.
In this full-day, six-hour session, participants take a closer look at fundamental mathematics. The session showcases the coherence of multiplication and division as participants explore how those operations develop in Grades 3–5.
Participants study Problem Sets, analyze teaching sequences, deliver lesson segments, practice fluency activities, and model with mathematics. By using tape diagrams, place value charts, arrays, area models, and unit language, participants make connections among content areas. As they multiply and divide whole numbers, fractions, and decimals, participants see that although units change (e.g., from whole numbers to fractions), the models, representations, and properties of arithmetic remain the same.
In this full-day, six-hour session, participants learn more about the instructional sequence that builds up to the introduction of functions in Grade 8. The session traces the trajectory of content from ratios to properties of similar triangles. It also shows the progression of those concepts, highlighting where they intersect and teaching participants why the slope of a line is well defined.
Participants study Classwork, analyze Problem Sets, deliver lesson segments, and model with mathematics. They synthesize what they learned in the first half of the day by developing an argument that the slope of a nonvertical line can be determined by using any two distinct points along the line. The second half of the day focuses on linear equations with one variable. Participants experience the curriculum’s progression of expressions and equations and learn how to leverage the support of visual models, identities, and properties.
