Workshop Goals

  • Explore the learning trajectories of key mathematics concepts in Grades 5-8th mathematics in order to support and extend the mathematical learning of all students.
  • Deepen participants’ understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice as a tool to increase the cognitive rigor of mathematical tasks. 
  • Enhance participants’ knowledge of the use of visual representations in mathematics (e.g., tape diagrams, double number lines, etc) in order to support student reasoning and problem solving strategies.
