Building Computational Fluency: Multiplication & Division

Focus on: Grades 3 - 6
Course Number: TEED346N

When teachers understand how children make sense of multiplication and division, they are better able to create strategies that support students in developing computational fluency. Using student work samples and video clips, we will explore how children develop meaningful, efficient, and accurate computational strategies for multiplication and division. We'll examine mathematical ideas central to multiplication and division, thereby deepening mathematical content knowledge. Additionally, we'll analyze the role of the traditional algorithm in a standards-based elementary mathematics classroom.

Language Matters! Supporting Mathematical Discourse in the Classroom
Focus on: Ages 5 – 13
Course Number: TEWS749N

This workshop will explore the role of discourse in the mathematics classroom. How do we support the development of ideas and language in mathematics?  All students, including ELLs and those with language-based disabilities, need supported opportunities to communicate their mathematical thinking and develop mathematical language. The workshop will focus on the “why” of mathematics while exploring strategies to support and develop productive discourse for all learners in a classroom.
