Improving Teaching and Learning in the Math Classroom
What math do your students know? What are their misunderstandings and gaps? What math do you want them to learn? How can you bridge the gap?
In these workshops, we will dig into student thinking, their gaps and misconceptions. We will use that information to set achievable, relevant math goals. We will explore and implement engaging math routines and activities that support students to fill in gaps, correct misconceptions, and build on prior knowledge.
Each day of the workshop, we will bring in and analyze student work from the classroom, reflect on progress towards our mathematical goals, and plan new activities and routines to be implemented in the classroom for the next workshop.
The activities and routines will engage students at all levels, integrate into and support regular course work and support both the math learning and teaching practices.
The three Saturday sessions will be held in the UCLA Math Sciences Building on September 14, September 28, And October 12 – typically from 9 to 12.
Enrollment is limited. Each day of the workshop builds on the previous day, so it is important to commit to all three days.
