Learn about effective strategies for helping students obtain computational and procedural fluency so that they retain more of what they learn and avoid common misconceptions.
Join this edWebinar to learn how we can inspire our students to see mathematicians as role models and as a potential future career option.
Current employment trends and future projections all point towards continued growth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) jobs, as well as the need for STEM-related skills in other fields. Yet, recent math proficiency levels among American students remain low, at just 44% in fourth grade and 33% at the eighth-grade level, and the math score trend lines are not showing significant improvement.
In this edWebinar, we’ll discuss resources that help promote mathematical thinking, ideas for implementing strategic classroom changes, and activities to ensure a powerful transformation.
A pilot program of the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) has made 12 states’ reviews of secondary math and language arts materials available, with a wide range of K-12 resources from these and other states to follow. As explained by Christine Fox, Deputy Executive Director of SETDA, during a recent edWebinar, this searchable information will help educational leaders ensure that the materials they purchase are high-quality, aligned with their standards and goals, and accessible to all students.
In this interactive edWebinar, participants will explore, discuss, and experience research-informed, classroom-tested approaches for writing in the content area of mathematics, with both ELs and non ELs, because we know that all students are mathematics language learners.
This edWebinar will launch SETDA’s latest resource, the State K12 Instructional Materials Database, an online tool to access state-reviewed, full course instructional materials for secondary language arts and math.
In this edWebinar, the mathematics coordinator from the Waukegan Community Unit School District #60 in Illinois will discuss how the district employs a continuous and connected approach to improving assessment, instruction and learning.
In this edWebinar learn about famous mathematicians and their mathematics and leave with a collection of mathematical ideas and books you can share with your students of any age.
It’s fractions versus decimals! In this edWebinar, Dr. Drew Corley makes the case for fractions, while Dr. Zach Wissner-Gross argues on behalf of decimals.
