REGION 4 MATHEMATICS CONFERENCECornerstones for Success

January 26, 2019

Join other mathematics educators for this one-day conference focused on creating meaningful mathematics experiences and effective learning possibilities for every math student. Attend mini-sessions that provide tools such as classroom-ready activities that bridge concrete, pictorial, and abstract representations of key mathematics concepts, strategies that include all learners, and technology-based activities.

CONFERENCE PARTICIPANT COMMENTS

Each year, we ask conference participants to complete “As a result of the conference, I initiated the following action…” after the event.
 
Shared actions range from the specific…

  • I am better able to explain the relationship between division & multiplication. Rather than sticking to the standard algorithm, I will also incorporate the partial product strategy to better help my students.
  • I will reteach subtraction with the new strategies that I learned.
  • I learned that getting your students to show their work is very simple. Give them the answers.
  • I created a new lesson plan for area and volume and initiated a new discourse model!
  • I will be using the graphic organizer for solving quadratics and teaching conditional probability using tree diagrams.
 
To the more general…
  • I initiated more "Math Talk."
  • I have completed activities with my students that I learned during the conference.
  • I adapted my current unit's lesson plans to include the activities we learned and this week I will re-emphasize growth mindset to my students.
  • I am being more mindful of the characteristics of the GT student and designing lessons that are based on their academic and social needs.
  • I am using more visual materials to help ELs to develop concepts.

 

After a full Saturday learning from and with presenters from area districts and Region 4, teachers, coaches, and other leaders leave “good tired,” with activities, ideas, and reflections to reframe, refocus, and reenergize efforts to support our scholars.
