Join us as we reimagine mathematics instruction and explore strategies for building an intuitive understanding of math concepts from Kindergarten through High School. By recognizing common threads and making connections between math standards across grade levels, we can become better mathematics educators and help ALL of our students discover just how math-minded they can be.

In this session, participants will:
  • Experience several examples of using a CRA (Concrete Representational Abstract) progression for teaching mathematics concepts at all grade levels
  • Explore simple, yet powerful tools that provide a concrete foundation for building student understanding of challenging mathematics concepts
  • Use K-2 strategies of composing and decomposing to make sense of traditionally challenging concepts in later grades (such as fractions and decimals, expressions and equations, and area and volume)
  • Decode and reinterpret commonly misunderstood standards at various grade levels
  • Trace the learning progression of concepts (such as fractions, multiplication, and division) from elementary school through high school, and identify opportunities for making connections between student prior knowledge and new mathematical content

The cost to attend this training is $100/person and lunch will be provided. Each participant will receive 5.5 PD hours upon completion of the training. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.
