Multiplication and Division: Helping Students with the Cognitive Shift (Session 1)

Part 1 of 2. Second session on 12/13/18.

Multiplication is the start of proportional reasoning  - we can interpret 3 x 4 as for every 1, there is 4. This two-part after school workshop will help teachers fine tune their understanding of multiplicative thinking with an emphasis on the relationship between multiplication and division. For many students the shift from additive to multiplicative thinking is incomplete, and plagues their future work in mathematics. Using video, student interviews and their own experiences with multiplication and division, teachers will extend their own understandings and so deepen their ability to help students make the cognitive shift from additive to multiplicative thinking.

Participants will:

• deepen content understanding of multiplication and division
• Extend ability to listen to and interpret student thinking
• Strengthen coherence of multiplication and division instruction

Location TBA.

Workshop: Building a Math Community

A joyful math community is one in which students feel safe to take risks, make mistakes, and share their thinking. It’s a place where doing math is a collaborative, meaningful experience for all learners. This workshop will offer teachers tools, resources and images of vibrant math classrooms that will help you lay a foundation for a strong math community this year.

Information about per session and CTLE credits coming soon.

Fractions Workshop (Brooklyn part 1 of 3)

[Brooklyn, part 1 of 3; Part 2: 1/18; Part 3: 1/25]
The fraction progression in the Common Core is our best support as we help our students develop real mathematical understanding of fractions. We will develop our own understanding of this progression and consider how it guides our assessment and conferring. We will

• solve some problems together to develop our own sense of this progression.
• focus on tools and language that support our understanding of fractions.
• Plan teaching moves and self-directed tasks to advance student learning from their current place of understanding.
• work collaboratively across schools.

Work will be differentiated for previous years' participants.

Operations & Algebraic Thinking Workshop (Brooklyn part 1 of 2)

[Brooklyn part 1 of 2; Part 2 date: November 9]
The operations and algebraic thinking progression in the Common Core supports teachers in thinking about the properties of operations as they help children learn to add and subtract, and later, multiply and divide. We will

• do some math ourselves to develop our own sense of this progression
• develop questions and routines which help students understand the properties of operations that allow humans to act on the quantities they have mapped on the world.

Place Value Understanding and Conferring (Brooklyn Part 1 of 2)

[Brooklyn Part 1 of 2, part 2 on 10/12]
The place value progression in the Common Core is our best support as we help our students develop real understanding of the system of numbers used by the entire world. In these two sessions we will

• solve some problems together to develop our own sense of the Numbers & Operations in Base 10 progression.
• focus on tools and language that support our understanding of place value.
• plan teaching moves and self-directed tasks to advance student learning from their current place of understanding.

Fractions Workshop (Part 3: Conferring)

[Optional Part 3 of 2 or 3]
Participants must have attended the two previous workshop on Fractions, either in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

In this session, teachers work with students in an after school program. Teachers will practice using their new understanding of the fractions progression as a tool for conferring.

Location TBD in Brooklyn.

[Brooklyn Part 1 of 2]
The place value progression in the Common Core is our best support as we help our students develop real understanding of the system of numbers used by the entire world. In these two sessions we will

• do some math ourselves to develop our own sense of the Numbers & Operations in Base 10 Continuum, and
• confer with individual students on day 2, listening for the sense they are already making of place value and thinking about how to help them build on those ideas.
