Members of the Critical Transitions in Early Math Group will share and provide access to resources for educators that support K-Grade 3 mathematics. Presenters will include Melanie Martin and Dr. Lynda Colgan (The Roots of Coding); Dr. Sandy Youmans (Early Math at Home and Early Math at School); Dr. Heather Douglas (Early Math Assessment Screening Tool); Hannah Wickstrom (Structured Play); and Angeline Hunter (Greater Essex County District Classroom Support Documents).
Mathematics Leadership has partnered with Dr. John Mighton from JUMP Math to talk about evidence-based principles of instruction, and share the results of research and implementation of JUMP Math.
Members of the Computational Modelling CoP will present on Math+Making activities and Computational Participation (Kafai, 2016) activities. Moreover, you will have an opportunity to explore a new virtual tool, CoSpaces Edu, and a lesson plan which provides an idea of how to use patterns while creating a virtual garden in CoSpaces Edu.
George Gadanidis (Western University) of the Computational Modelling CoP will present on Math+Coding Grades 6 to 10 in a collaborative learning setting. This session will introduce a research-based resource offering: low floor & high ceiling tasks, coding starting points to bring math to life dynamically, conceptual surprises & insights, and a revitalized classroom culture. Participants will receive a free PDF copy of the resource, Math + Coding Teams, Gr. 6-10.
In this presentation on numeracy screeners for Kindergarten to grade 3, Heather Douglas will provide a brief review of early numeracy and the critical foundations for number learning. Using lessons learned from literacy, Heather will review what is involved in a numeracy screening program. Core considerations for selecting a screener and how to find a suitable screener will be part of the conversation.
A Collaborative Approach involving pre- and in-service teachers, numeracy consultants, and university faculty. In this presentation, we describe the collaborative approach as a way of supporting the enactment of the new coding expectations in the revised Gr. 1-9 mathematics curricula. We provide a window into how the collaboration worked, including concrete examples from specific pre-service and in-service teacher teams.
Marina Milner-Bolotin and Dragana Martinovic will present research on modelling and its pedagogical potential in K-12 education and discuss ideas for teaching modelling at various levels of schooling. They will also introduce their educational framework that includes steps for incorporating modelling in STEM subjects. By the end of this webinar, participants will be ready to teach and facilitate modelling during their mathematics and science classes.
