Formative Assessment with Mathematical Models

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Formative Assessment with Mathematical Models

Presented by Dr. Julie McNamara, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at California State University East Bay
Sponsored by Conceptua Math

WATCH THE EDWEBINAR RECORDING

If you attended the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the edWebinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Building Understanding in Mathematics community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.

This edWebinar is part three of our three-part series, Making Your Math Class a Model to Behold, which addresses the steps you can take as a teacher to make your mathematics classroom as successful as possible for you and your students. It will focus on the research-based strategies around the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The series will specifically focus on the upper-elementary mathematics classroom, but can be applied to all K-8 grade levels.

Mathematical models, visual representations, lie at the heart of upper-elementary education. Fraction bars, arrays, base ten blocks—these all play a huge role in building deep understanding. When students are asked to represent their thinking with these models, we can formatively assess their mastery. This session will focus on the strategic use of models to both teach and assess student mathematical comprehension. Dr. Julie McNamara, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at California State University East Bay, provides practical examples for teachers to consistently incorporate visual models into lessons to better see into student understanding. She also will share actionable advice to principals and math coaches for how to determine the effectiveness of modeling practices in the classroom.

Educators are encouraged to encourage their principals and/or math coaches to watch this recorded edWebinar as the content will help everyone to be on the same page.

This edWebinar is part of the Making Your Math Class a Model to Behold Series:
Students Making Viable Arguments in Math: SMP 3 in Action
Low-Entry, High-Exit Math Tasks that Keep Every Student Engaged

Julie McNamaraAbout the Presenter

Julie McNamara, Ph.D., is an author, presenter, researcher, and teacher trainer. Her books include Beyond Pizzas and Pies: 10 Essential Strategies for Supporting Fraction Sense, Grades 3-5 and Beyond Invert and Multiply: Making Sense of Fraction Computation, Grades 3-6. Dr. McNamara has supported mathematics teachers as a designer and provider of mathematics professional development for TeachingWorks, Math Solutions, and as an independent consultant. Her research focuses on the teaching and learning of mathematics concepts that are foundational but considered hard to teach and hard to learn. She is currently an assistant professor of Mathematics Education at California State University East Bay.

Join the Building Understanding in Mathematics community to network with educators, participate in online discussions, receive invitations to upcoming edWebinars, view past edWebinars, take a quiz to receive a CE certificate for a past edWebinar, and access free resources.
