Free Virtual Learning Event for Educators

Lifting The Curtain on Math Magic Flier.pages

There are numerous tricks in mathematics that can be tempting for parents and teachers to share with students because of the simplicity of them. However, this math magic can make getting the answer so easy, it discourages students from trying to make sense of problems. In this session, participants will develop their conceptual understanding behind some popular tricks and develop strategies to teach for understanding rather than answer getting. The roles of representation and contextualization will be explored in depth.

Format: Participants will connect via Zoom, a free video conferencing platform to engage in whole group and small group math activities.
