Numeracy 8 Standard Practices of Mathematics Facilitator: Cynthia Bell Audience: ABE & GED/HSE instructors, program managers Have you ever wondered how to apply the Common Core State Standard mathematical standard practice “Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them,” or even what it means? If you would like to learn how the eight standard practices of mathematics should affect your instruction and your students’ learning, then this workshop is for you. In addition, you will learn how to develop activities and tasks that allow students to display these practices. Date: NUM 14-105 - Tuesday, October 29

Providing Coherence of Concepts and Procedures: Instructional Shifts for Math Facilitator: Cynthia Bell Audience: ABE & GED/HSE instructors, program managers Participants will learn how the Common Core State Standards mathematics shifts should be applied to their instruction. We will investigate the benefits of providing explicit coherence of concepts and skills through all levels of mathematics. Additionally, participants will learn how the use of coherence will help students to see that mathematics can and should make sense. Date: NUM 14-108 - Thursday, December 5 Time: 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

Time: 9:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.

Focusing on Priority Concepts: InstRuctional Shifts for Math

How to Break the Habit of Teaching Only Procedural Mathematics

Facilitator: Cynthia Bell Audience: ABE & GED/HSE instructors, program managers

Facilitator: Cynthia Bell Audience: ABE & GED/HSE instructors, program managers

Participants will learn how the Common Core State Standards mathematics shifts should be applied to their instruction. We will investigate the benefits of focusing on priority concepts. Additionally, we will learn how to correct students’ mathematical misconceptions by applying the shift of focus to our instruction.

Participants will learn how to develop students who are mathematically proficient by introducing mathematical concepts prior to procedures. Additionally, participants will learn techniques for moving away from teaching procedure first to teaching a blend of concepts, procedures, and applications.

Date: NUM 14-106 - Thursday, November 7
