If there is a perfect mathematics curriculum out there, then no one has brought it to my attention. So, what options do we have? As a full-time practicing classroom teacher, I will share with you what I implement in my classroom that covers a range of “critical thinking demands” to invite all students into a mathematics curriculum that is relevant and challenging, one that values procedural skills as well as conceptual understanding. We will work with visual patterns to develop algebraic reasoning and engage in number talks to develop number sense and flexible thinking. We will experience productive struggle through rich and challenging tasks that support the Standards for Mathematical Practice. We will implement a curriculum that endeavors to make math social, one that values collaboration and encourages play and risk taking.

Known for: The Recovering Traditionalist, Mathematically Minded, Online Number Sense 101 Course

When we say a child is ‘fluent’ in math, we are only assessing if they are Accurate and Efficient. There is a missing and even more important component to building fluency: Flexibility. Learn to build fluency by increasing students’ flexibility with numbers with Hands-On AND Minds-On activities that you can take back and use in your classroom. Participants will leave with an understanding of how number sense affects students’ ability to become ‘fluent,’ especially with addition and multiplication, and how that affects their understanding of future mathematics.
