JUST IN TIME-TEACHER Summer Series Multiplying and Dividing Whole Numbers
July 8, 2022
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
This summer [Math]odology will replace our annual institute, “Essential Understanding in Mathematics,” with six live virtual workshops throughout June and July.
At [Math]odology we strive to provide teachers with tools to make the teaching and learning of mathematics accessible for all. Our “Just In Time” workshop series offers rich professional development on the precise topics you need. We understand your time is valuable so our workshops will focus on one concept and the development of the core knowledge needed to obtain success. Sarah Schaefer & Dr. Yeap Ban Har will incorporate the concrete, pictorial, and abstract models and discuss how to relate these models to achieve abstract thinking and reasoning.
Since 2007, Sarah has held teacher, student, and parent workshops around the globe. Since the pandemic, she and her team have provided hundreds of hours of support to teachers, students, and parents through virtual workshops, webinars, and recorded videos. Her 20 years of teaching mathematics in K-12 classrooms along with her extensive teacher training and most recent authorship of both the think!Mathematics and Developing Roots places Sarah as a leader in the field.
Yeap Ban Har, Ph.D., was a faculty member at the National Institute of Education Singapore at Nanyang Technological University. Since then he has held concurrent positions as principal of a teacher professional development institute, director of curriculum and professional development at the Pathlight School in Singapore and the Anglo Singapore International School in Thailand. His research interests include problem posing and solving, challenging all students, and teacher professional development.
The sessions have limited capacity; which means you’ll be collaborating with smaller groups and learning with educators from around the world. We hope that the time is right for you to join us as we teach less, and learn more!
Multiplying and Dividing Whole Numbers
During this session, participants will investigate the different strategies in multiplication and division. The focus will be both on developing a strong understanding of numbers in order to use mental computations but also relating place-value understanding to teaching the “why” behind the standard algorithm. Participants will see the value of the CPA approach and how the teacher relates ideas in developing conceptual understanding around these operations.
Offered July 8th, 2022 10 a.m-1 p.m. EST
Venue: Remote Learning
Virtual training sessions through zoom cloud platform.
