Session III: NIX THE TRICKS! Shifting students from answer-getting to thinking (Tuesday) FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

If you've ever "moved a decimal point "or looked "next store" when rounding, you've been using tricks! It's not your fault....that's probably how you learned. In today's world, however, students need to understand WHY math works. Did you know that the word "understand" is used in the new standards on 72 out of 93 pages? In this session, participants will learn strategies to replace the old tricks, move away from answer-getting, and get students thinking! (Grades PreK-8)
