Session Location:

About the Session:

Inviting students to explore activities that not only develop specific math skills, but also develop skill sets that go beyond the mathematics classroom, can help us to identify student misconceptions and gain a deeper insight into our students’ learning!

 In this hands-on session, participants will explore how to use research-based strategies such as mathematical argumentation, concept circles, and think-louds to enhance student learning and empower all students to think deeply about mathematics. These strategies are easy to implement across all grade levels and math strands, rendering mathematical thinking more accessible and transparent for both learners and teachers! You will leave with practical ideas that you will be able to use on Monday morning!
