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 two of our three-part series, Making Your Math Class a Model to Behold, which will address 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.

We want students to persevere in solving problems and to attend to precision. But, what happens when students simply cannot get started on a task? This session will focus on practical strategies for designing daily lessons that help students enter at a “low” level and leave the class at a much “higher” level. Arjan Khalsa, CEO of Conceptua Math, providea strategies for starting class periods by engaging background knowledge, briefly using hands-on manipulatives, and providing entry experiences that engage all students. He also provides guidance to the math coach or principal for seeing how a teacher is making math accessible to all students.

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
Formative Assessment with Mathematical Models
