Developing Mathematical Habits of the Mind: Thinking the Math Instead of Doing the Math
This workshop will provide teachers with resources that engage students in meaningful differentiated learning experiences to encourage students to think mathematically. Topics in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II will be addressed that shift the focus of teaching around rich tasks. Pedagogical strategies and techniques that help students develop and foster mathematical habits of the mind through problem solving, modeling, and making mathematical connections will be discussed. Classroom-ready hands-on materials that focus on the development of conceptual and procedural knowledge will be shared.
