Session 2: Making Math Meaningful (class 2)
Thu May 28th, 2020 3:30 pm - Thu May 28th, 2020 5:00 pm


Math is usually labeled as a rote and black/white subject. Many people identify very early as being "good" at math or not, and self-maintain that label throughout life. However, math doesn't have to be like that! This workshop will help math teachers think about their subject with a more active approach. 

The goal of the workshop will be:

  • to design a unit that culminates with an authentic assessment that incorprates multiple ways of knowing (Gardner)
  • focuses on conceptual understanding
  • and builds on interdisciplinary applications of math skills and mathematical thinking.

This workshop will start with a presentation on recent math pedagogy research and practices, and end with participants using these skills and ideas to create a unit plan based on the ideas presented.

(Best for Grades 6-12)

Presenter: Caitlin Littlefield is Dean of Teaching and Learning at Buffalo Seminary.
