Session 2: 12:30 – 1:30 pm EDT
Be Both Author And Illustrator Of Mathematical Understanding
Jill Gough, Trinity School, Atlanta, GA
How might we redirect the focus of teaching and learning to center on empowering each and every student as sense-makers and doers of mathematics as they develop their mathematical identities and become agents of their own learning?
We want every learner in our care to be BOTH author and illustrator of their mathematical understanding. Explore how to deepen understanding, promote productive struggle, and increase flexibility by using and connecting mathematical representations.
Providing multiple pathways to success invites diverse learners’ ideas to the conversation. We will sketch and compute to develop a visual, vertical understanding of numeracy and how to connect learning between grades and courses.
Here are the first two slides of my deck. They are both linked to the slides used in the presentation.
