K-8 Mathematics: What’s the Big Idea?

Many teachers are interested in changing the way they teach mathematics. In this workshop learn some mathematics yourself, as well as new and creative ways to teach in your classroom. http://www.learner.org/workshops/math/

Private Universe Project in Mathematics

Research shows that children often invent complex mathematical concepts, even at young ages. This workshop explores how math teaching can be structured to encourage those inventions, turn students on to math, and improve achievement. http://www.learner.org/workshops/pupmath/

Teaching Math

A Video Library, K-4, http://www.learner.org/resources/series32.html teachers reveal their strategies for improving their students' understanding of mathematical concepts.
Elementary teachers tap the excitement and energy of children from kindergarten through grade 4 as they solve problems, learn to make connections between concepts, and communicate and reason mathematically. Teaching Math K-4 documents effective teaching and learning in many schools: small, large, rural, suburban, and inner-city.

Learning Math

When teachers have a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics, it can help their students develop strong mathematical skills and knowledge. Learning Math is a series of five multimedia, college-level courses designed to teach mathematics content to elementary and middle school teachers. Organized around the content standards developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the courses cover Number and Operations; Patterns, Functions, and Algebra; Geometry; Measurement; and Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability.
Official registration is not required, the courses can be completed online at any time.

Overall Objectives
  • To help teachers better understand mathematics content
  • To provide engaging explorations of mathematics using video, interactive activities, and problem solving
  • To encourage teachers to view mathematics as more than rote sets of rules and procedures

Pairing Podcasts & Journal Articles

  • Several sessions from NCTM’s 2009 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C., have been turned into podcasts and paired with an article from one of NCTM’s school journals. These podcasts are now available for download to your computer or MP3 player. YTA & YEU members can ask me to purchase them a copy of the article of their choice by sending me a quick note @ Paula.Thompson@yesnet.yk.ca.

E-Seminars Schedule and Desciptions (Live Events)

E-Seminars ANYTIME

  • With the purchase of an E-Seminar ANYTIME, you will receive a recording of the E-Seminar, as well as, a site facilitator guide.
  • Get a closer look at hot topics in math education with these onetime 60-minute online seminars presented by experienced math educators. more >>
  • E-Seminar ANYTIME topics
  • Here are a couple of examples:
    • Preparing for the First Days of Mathematics Instruction and Beyond (Elementary) with Susan Garthwaite, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA
      Purchase
      This E-Seminar will help teachers create and support a mathematics community within their classrooms. Ideas will be shared about how to prepare the physical space of the classroom. In addition, teachers will learn how to begin building a classroom culture that supports discourse and students' mathematical understanding.
    • Effective Mathematics Instruction: The Role of Mathematical Tasks (K-12) with Margaret S. Smith, University of Pittsburg, Pittsburgh, PA
      Purchase
      This seminar will focus on the relationship between the nature of the mathematical tasks in which students engage and what students ultimately learn about what mathematics is and how one does it. Specifically, the seminar will focus on the cognitive demands of mathematical tasks, how these demands can change during instruction, and why maintaining the high level demands of tasks is critical to student learning. Participants will have opportunity to engage in an analysis of two tasks, to analyze several short vignettes of classroom instruction, and to consider research that makes salient the impact of tasks on learning.

Live E-Workshops Schedule & Description (Live Events)

  • Most E-Workshops include a follow-up session to reflect and discuss the impact of the activities on student learning and to explore some additional activities. Get more information on how E-Workshops work.
