This professional learning experience will provide an opportunity to share thoughts, experiences and ideas with other teachers and interested educators while experiencing a school-wide culture of learning.  The experience will include the opportunity to observe students as active learners in problem-centered mathematics lessons across grade levels and discuss the potential of such lessons for deep student learning.  Debriefing discussions will focus on how and why different schools might implement effective mathematics lessons structured around rich mathematics problems.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to (i) participate in discussions of the co-planning process that led to the observed lessons, (ii) involve other colleague(s) at your school in your own co-planning process to design a problem centered mathematics lesson intended to help students make sense of math concepts and (iii) share and discuss your experience with other participants.

Cost: Free!

During this session, participants will explore big ideas of algebraic reasoning for grades 3-5 and consider a variety of ways to support students in deepening their understandings of these ideas. For example, students can use a math balance to explore ideas about equivalence, equations, operations and variables. Participants will receive books and instructional materials including a set of student math balances.

DATE: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 (8:30 am - 3:30 pm EST)

Registration will no longer be available for this event after 11:59 pm on April 23, 2019.

"Visualize. Play. Investigate." The Explorations in Mindsets learning experience will feature opportunities for teachers to participate in conceptual, visual mathematics and examine the deep student thinking that is possible with low-floor, high-ceiling mathematical tasks which engage students in visualizing, exploring and talking about the big mathematical ideas of each grade level. 

Participants will receive both the 4th and 5th grade books in Jo Boaler's series Mindeset Mathematics: Visualizing and Investigating Big Ideas.

This 8-day learning opportunity is designed for classroom, special education and mathematics intervention teachers of students in Grades K-2.  Participants will engage in varied instructional strategies, and will acquire tools to assess, support, and advance students' mathematical reasoning and knowledge. Aligned to research-based teaching practices and KAS, topics will include counting and cardinality, number and operations, early algebraic reasoning, conceptual place value, measurement and data, and math/literature connections.  Participants will receive books, activities and instructional materials, along with assessment strategies to identify and target student needs and misconceptions in early numeracy.

As this is an intensive professional learning experience, participants will be expected to attend all 8 dates of this course. MAF teachers are required to attend all 8 days. 

2019 DATES:
Days 1-2: Thursday & Friday, June 20-21 (9 am-4 pm, EST)
