Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, participants will engage in activities which will shift their mindset from American mathematical procedures and practices to one of a more multicultural outlook. They will grapple with a variety of mathematical representations thereby placing themselves in the mind of the learner. By embracing other mathematical representations, we can then understand the needs of our learners further and differentiate our instruction accordingly. After reviewing several differences in mathematics education throughout the world, we will then explore strategies that the presenter has found helpful in moving students towards language proficiency while harnessing their mathematics backgrounds to move towards computational fluency (grades PreK-12).

Participants will leave with several strategies to utilize in the mathematics classroom as well as a newfound respect for math in other countries. We will also share an intake assessment which will allow teachers to further educate themselves as to their students’ mathematical history.
