As mathematics pedagogy moves further toward thinking about the process of getting the answer rather than just the answer itself, developing problem-solving skills is key to student success. With the continued move to distance learning and digital resources, educators need to make sure any tools support this new mindset. During an edWeb edLeader Panel sponsored by ORIGO Education, the presenters offered their key criteria for digital mathematics tools and how they should support teachers and students.

Understand the effectiveness of visual models and visualization to develop conceptual understanding and number sense.
In this edWebinar, participants will learn what’s wrong with using worksheets to teach math and what options are available for teachers to use instead.
Providing science and math content online can be relatively straightforward, but engaging students in true distance learning requires more than just transmittal of information. Secondary students in particular need to be able to see and ask questions during laboratory experiments, or receive feedback when developing their own solutions to math problems. During a recent edWebinar, two experienced teachers explained how they made the transition from teaching in a classroom to remote instruction during the spring, and how they are prepared to teach online or in hybrid settings during the new school year.
In this second edWebinar of a two-part series, Sara Delano Moore, Ph.D., Director of Professional Learning for ORIGO Education, will focus on selecting tasks for problem solving.
In this edWebinar, Timothy D. Kanold, Ph.D. explores the essential elements of high school mathematics month-by-month unit planning. How do we deliver a college and career readiness curriculum during a pandemic?
