What are the behaviors of mathematically proficient students? Better yet, how do we engage students so that these behaviors come alive in our classrooms? This session will focus on intentional and strategic yet practical and easy-to-implement strategies for bringing elementary mathematics to life. Participants will leave with a collection of activities and resources ready for implementation in their K-2 classrooms.

Learning outcomes include:

  • Participants will explore strategies for implementing the Math Practice Standards.
  • Participants will explore how to engage students in the learning of mathematics.
