School of Education faculty will be presenting at the 2019 annual meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), April 3-6. The 2019 theme is Empowering the Mathematics Community. NCTM, founded in 1920, advocates for high quality mathematics teaching and learning for each and every student.
Workshop: Building a Foot: From One-Inch-Square Tiles to a Ruler—Linear Measure in Context (Pre-K–2)
Presented by Janna Canzone (UCI CFEP), Karajean Hyde (UCI CalTeach)
Description: How can building a ruler, estimating and then measuring the length of objects be used to develop conceptual understanding of standard measurement? Join us for hands-on, classroom-ready activities that build student understanding. The session will also include engaging games to support all types of learners with measurement concepts.
Workshop: Capitalizing on Curiosity: Linear, Exponential & Quadratic Models from Observing a Ball in Motion
Presented by Jeff Hruby (UCI CFEP), Karajean Hyde (UCI CalTeach), Janna Canzone (UCI CFEP)
Description: Connect your students to the fundamental human desire to understand the world. Recreate simple motion experiments similar to Galileo’s that led to Newton’s Laws of Motion. Experience classroom proven lessons that promote discourse, collaboration, and problem solving using readily accessible materials, including phone videos, to generate data.
Exhibit: ST Math
Presented by MIND Research Institute
Description: comSpatial-Temporal (ST) Math® is a visual instructional program that builds a deep conceptual understand-ing of math through rigorous learning and creative problem solving to engage, motivate and challenge pre-K–8 students toward higher achievement. Studies across a wide variety of student groups continue to demonstrate ST Math’s efficacy in building life-long learners prepared for success in STEM. ST Math currently reaches more than 1.2 million students.
