Dan Meyer


Workshop Date: March 4, 2017

Grades: 6-12

Known for: TED Talk, blog, 3-act tasks, Desmos

During this day-long workshop, we’ll develop dependable techniques for helping your students learn and love to learn difficult mathematics. Teachers are often given advice to simply make math more “real world” or to relate math to careers, techniques that pay off diminishing returns as students learn more challenging mathematics. So we’ll examine advanced techniques, ones that are applicable throughout all of 6-12 mathematics. We’ll apply them to worksheets and activities you already use, so you’ll leave our workshop with strategies you can apply in the future and lessons you can use tomorrow.
