Description (Purpose)

"Creating Active Thinkers"
In the mathematics world we are all about providing strategies teachers can utilize to increase student's complex thinking and the development of the Mathematical Practices. To develop these develop 21st century skills, we must move beyond the traditional teaching model. Join us for Creating Active Thinkers, on the "How To" journey to promote change in mathematics instruction.
Objectives:
  • Provide strategies teachers can utilize to increase students’ complex level thinking.
  • Connect the strategies to the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

Learner Outcomes:
Through the development of thoughtful classrooms aligned to the Standards of Mathematical Practice, educators will understand and promote complex level thinking in students.
