Teaching and Measuring the Common Core's Mathematical Practices  (Register Here)
The Standards for Mathematical Practice, a unique feature of the Common Core State Standards, describe the ways in which students engage with mathematical concepts and skills throughout elementary, middle, and high school. They offer eight hallmarks of math proficiency, which include perseverance, attending to precision, and modeling. How and what have we been doing to ensure that all our students develop these dispositions? Also, what are some ways in which student growth in these behaviors can be monitored, measured, and nurtured? This session will address these issues and provide practical tools to assist teachers in supporting high levels of engagement with the practices as students grow into mathematical maturity.

Your Math Students: Engaging and Understanding Every Day  (Register Here)
The most important and challenging aspect of daily planning is to regularly—and yes, that means every day—create, adapt, locate, and consider mathematical tasks that are appropriate to the developmental learning needs of each student. A concern Francis (Skip) Fennell often shares with teachers is that many of us can find or create a lot of “fun” tasks that are, for the most part, worthless in regards to learning mathematics. Mathematical tasks should provide a level of demand on the part of the student that ensures a focus on understanding and involves them in actually doing mathematics. In this webinar, hear insights from Francis (Skip) Fennell and Tim Hudson around how to:
• Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving
• Use and connect mathematical representations
• Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding
• Elicit and use evidence of student thinking
