Description Mathematics has never been more important, and high quality mathematics teachers have never been more in demand. The interconnected world of the 21st century has placed the ultimate value on processes associated with mathematics: problem solving, communication, representation, making connections, reasoning and proof. The implications for teaching are important. Teachers must be willing to collaborate, take risks and share their ideas. If teachers are willing to do these things, they will produce math students who think critically, work together and solve the problems of the 21st century.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

During this three-day course, the participants will:

- Examine, investigate and contribute to what is best practice for teaching elementary mathematics

- Learn how to develop critical thinkers by integrating the five process strands into your daily teaching

- Examine computational fluency through the lens of student work.

- Discuss everything ranging from effective tools for planning and assessment to simple strategies for creating flexible groupings

- Learn how to become more efficient by using the latest innovative technology tools such as Google Apps and the iPad

Study after study shows the most important component in a student’s ability to learn is the classroom teacher. We can help make sure you have the tools of best math practice for the world in which we live.

Mathematics has never been more important, and high quality mathematics teachers have never been more in demand. The interconnected world of the 21st century has placed the ultimate value on processes associated with mathematics: problem solving, communication, representation, making connections, reasoning and proof. The implications for teaching are important. Teachers must be willing to collaborate, take risks and share their ideas. If teachers are willing to do these things, they will produce math students who think critically, work together and solve the problems of the 21st century.

The smallest of details can make math instruction go from good to great. During the three-day workshop, we take you behind the scenes of the 21st-century classroom to examine, investigate and contribute to what is best practice for teaching elementary mathematics. Learn how to develop critical thinkers by integrating the five process strands into your daily teaching. Computational fluency is also one of the many topics we examine through the lens of student work. We discuss everything ranging from effective tools for planning and assessment to simple strategies for creating flexible groupings. Learn how to become more efficient by using the latest innovative technology tools such as Google Apps and the iPad. Study after study shows the most important component in a student’s ability to learn is the classroom teacher. We can help make sure you have the tools of best math practice for the world in which we live.
