Making Sense of Mathematics: An Introduction to the Van de Walle Professional Mathematics Series

Examine how teaching through problem solving helps students make sense of mathematics. Participants explore three critical features and an explicit structure to better understand how student learning becomes a natural outcome of the problem-solving process.

OUTCOMES:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Support simultaneous development of conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills.
  • Identify instructional skills and strategies that make mathematical relationships between ideas, facts, and procedures in an intentional and public way.
  • Support purposeful student struggle and identify common misconceptions as opportunities for student learning.
  • Support mathematics learning for diverse student populations, including English language learners.
