Who should attend [M4th]odology?
Administrators, curriculum supervisors, math coaches and teachers who want to learn mathematics for meaning versus rote memorization.
What is the [M4th]odology Institute?
It is an institute, not a workshop, where teachers are taught how to teach math, learning the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to teaching all mathematical concepts. All instructors are current educators implementing these strategies in their classrooms.
Why the [M4th]odology Institute?
It provides the structure to develop a math curriculum based on number sense. To support this curriculum we have developed an intensive 2 day, grade-specific institute that teaches sound pedagogical strategies to use in your classroom. This institute builds the conceptual knowledge
behind every mathematical computation. Teachers will leave understanding the whys and hows behind the mathematics. This institute uses techniques found in the Singapore Model Method for Learning Mathematics. “In Singapore, a substantial amount of curriculum time is devotedto teaching and learning mathematics in the early grade levels to build a strong foundation for the acquisition of mathematical knowledge and skills in later years. Effective learning of mathematics requires a coherent and well structured syllabus, excellent instructional materials, and good teachers who use sound pedagogical strategies that are developmentally appropriate.”
