Math Practices with Jennifer Bay-Williams

Part 1- Fostering Math Practices in All Students: Developing Flexibility and Strategy Use

Kindergarten - 5th Grade

9/5/19

8:30 – 4:00 pm

Kenai Public Library

We all want students who look at a problem like 308 – 299, and notice something about the numbers in the problem, to not just blindly apply an algorithm (e.g., regrouping over 0). For all students to strategic thinkers, it must be a priority in our mathematics classrooms! This means attending to all four components of procedural fluency, in particular strategy selection and flexibility. Together we will increase our understanding of what this means and explore classroom activities, routines, questioning strategies, and tools that support students in becoming flexible thinkers, and thereby stronger mathematicians.
