Mathematical Conversations for Next Generation STEM Students: Constructing Viable Arguments and Critiquing Other’s Reasoning
Wednesday, November 11, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Presented by Amy LeHew, Curriculum Developer, TenMarks
Sponsored by TenMarks
Imagine a classroom where students engage naturally in mathematical conversations. In this environment, students can explain and expand upon STEM ideas, justify their reasoning, are naturally inquisitive, and work to understand the explanations of others. Increasing and improving students’ mathematical conversation begins with well-planned expectations and practices. In this recorded webinar, Amy LeHew, Curriculum Developer at TenMarks, explored how to promote productive math talk.
- The benefits of mathematical discourse
- Setting up the STEM classroom environment
- Planning for math conversations
- Evaluating students’ math talk
Learn how to enrich the mathematical conversation in your own classroom. This recorded webinar will benefit elementary and middle school teachers with math as a core responsibility, as well as administrators and math coaches.
