Explore a brief overview of instructional shifts for developing mathematical ideas around fluency with numbers and operations. At the end of the day, you will be more familiar with a variety of computational and operational math strategies as well as the importance of developing number flexibility.
We will practice addition/subtraction and multiplication/division strategies and hands-on activities to incorporate into your teaching practice that support developing understanding with these math concepts.
Find out how the use of manipulatives can further support mathematical understanding allowing students to understand eventually why standard algorithms work. Learn tasks, games, and activities for math instruction to increase student engagement as well as build more excitement of math for students.
Participants leave with games/activities students can work through in small group or independently in the classroom.
