On-Demand Engaging ALL Students through Authentic Math Modeling featuring Dr. Eric Milou ›
On-Demand Zak Champagne - Navigating the New Normal: Distance Learning 6-8 ›
It’s important to continue to build community and focus on student thinking. This opportunity will allow us all the chance to learn how to not make virtual learning just drill and practice, but to continue to engage our students as mathematicians who think, communicate, listen, share, and challenge each other as we learn together.

On-Demand Problem-Based Learning - Supporting Productive Struggle ›
Although there is not universal consensus on what mathematics content should be taught, there is consensus that whatever is taught should be taught with understanding. And, we know from research that there is an instructional model for teaching mathematics that helps all students build understanding. That model begins with selecting and implementing tasks or problems that elicit productive cognitive struggle. Productive struggle means students use reasoning and problem-solving processes to select, apply, and connect prior knowledge to new mathematical ideas; connecting prior knowledge to new ideas is the foundation for understanding. This session will illustrate the kind of instruction that elects cognitive struggle, it will illustrate signs that students are engaged in productive struggle, and it will illustrate ways teachers can support students in productive struggle.
On-Demand Developing Mathematical Thinking Habits Through Mathematical Practices in Kindergarten Through Grade 5 ›
In a world of technology, with lightning-fast processing and vast memory capacity, what mathematical abilities are going to prepare students to be educated, productive, and employable members of society? The answer is that students must be prepared not only with the knowledge of important mathematical concepts and skills, but also with experiences in which they learn how to think about and use that knowledge in order to investigate, evaluate, make decisions, and justify choices. Mathematical thinking habits develop over time as students consider questions that require them to analyze, justify, and revisit mathematical representations and problem-solving processes. Join author Janie Schielack as she provides us with guidelines for modeling questions that students can learn to ask themselves in order to engage in the mathematical practices that lead to long-term mathematical thinking habits.
On-Demand Developing the “Full Package” of Procedural Fluency ›
As educators one of our primary goals is to build mathematical thinkers who will flourish in their math careers. This means ensuring students have developed the “full package” of fluency. Unfortunately, we often neglect two essential components of fluency. In this webinar we will experience five research-based strategies that address these neglected components of fluency and also
On-Demand Author Webinar: Increase Student Learning and Engagement Using Desmos with Dr. Eric Milou ›
Change the nature of school mathematics by engaging students in more active mathematical practices. In this webinar, Dr. Eric Milou will show you how to use Desmos to get your students experimenting, investigating and problem-solving! Bring depth to students’ learning and encourage them to ask questions rather than only looking for answers.
On-Demand Author Webinar: Counting: More than Just ›
Counting is more than memorization, more than one-to-one correspondence, and more than procedural skills. In this webinar, Dr. Juanita Copley will examine five principles for cardinality and counting.
On-Demand Author Webinar: Developing Conceptual Understanding: What, When, and How with Dr. Janet H. Caldwell ›
There are two ingredients for developing conceptual understanding: computational proficiency and problem-solving skills. But what is meant by this? In this webinar, we examine five instructional strategies that can help students develop conceptual understanding: Building Skills and Procedures from Concepts, Using Problem-Based Teaching, Using Multiple Representations, Focusing on Reasoning and Communication, and Helping Students Make Connections between Concepts. Within each strategy, we'll explore examples of concepts, illustrate how concepts develop over time through number concepts like place value, and we will uncover the important outcomes for teaching understanding.
On-Demand Author Webinar: Nothing But Desmos with Dr. Eric Milou ›
Come enjoy this webinar on the free online graphing calculator Desmos. Dr. Eric Milou will explore all of Desmos’ features, from animating objects and functions to creating lessons and assessments, and even exploring the link between art and math.
