## Learning & Leading For Experienced Math Coaches

Are you an experienced math coach looking for innovative ways to support teachers in the teaching and learning of mathematics? Is the goal of your work to build capacity in mathematics instruction? Are you searching for the next steps to continue the shifts in mathematics instruction? The Mathematics Institute of Wisconsin is offering an opportunity for experienced math coaches to study ways to improve student learning in mathematics while supporting teachers making shifts in their classroom practice that lead to…

## Ensuring High Quality Mathematics Instruction in Your District

The Mathematics Institute of Wisconsin is offering a one-day leadership workshop, Ensuring High Quality Mathematics Instruction in Your District on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at our office in Waukesha. This workshop is designed for Administrators, Principals, Evaluators, Special Education Directors, and other school leaders to empower them to become better instructional leaders of mathematics. These questions (and more) will be tackled: What does high-quality mathematics instruction look like during a walk-through or observation? Are there specific things I should be…

## Empowering Emerging Math Coaches

Are you at the start of your journey as a math coach? Are you an instructional coach who is new to coaching mathematics? Are you looking for ways to begin supporting teachers in the teaching and learning of mathematics? The Mathematics Institute of Wisconsin is offering a unique opportunity for emerging math coaches to investigate how to provide optimal learning opportunities for students while supporting teachers in their instruction. This four day workshop will utilize coaching skills and the…

## What’s the Problem? Using Contexts to Support Mathematical Thinking

Come explore the different word problem situations that help students understand the operations of addition and subtraction! This two-day workshop will support you in learning more about using contexts to help students make sense of addition and subtraction. We will engage with the different problem situations and make sense of ways students might represent their thinking. Participants will have a chance to explore different math tools and manipulatives to use with students. You will be provided with activities that can…

## Using Technology to Engage Your Student’s Math Minds

Come explore connections between algebra and functions through the use of Desmos. This two-day seminar focuses on mathematical content knowledge around algebra and functions, while diving deeply into mathematical representations. Visual representations of mathematics help students deepen their understanding of mathematics. This seminar looks at various ways to represent the mathematical understanding, including visual, symbolic, and physical representations. Participants will use various mathematical representations of equations and functions and see the connections between them. Bring a laptop or tablet. Using…

## Geometry: Beyond Proof

Geometry is the only domain which is present in every grade, K-12, in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), but despite—perhaps because of—this, it is also under-emphasized in almost every grade. This module is designed to deepen participants’ knowledge and understanding of the CCSSM expectations for Geometry in Grades 7-12, with a brief look-back to the standards from earlier grades to emphasize the overall K-12 coherence of the geometry domain. One important difference between the CCSSM and earlier…

## Thinking About Interpretations and Representations for Multiplication and Division

What does it mean to multiply and divide? How can visual models support students in representing and solving problems involving multiplication and division? Come explore the three types of multiplication situations students work with in Grades 3-5 with a focus on using the inverse relationship between multiplication and division to build an understanding of the two division interpretations. Goals: Use mathematical representations to deepen of multiplication and division. Build an understanding of the two interpretations of division through the inverse…

## Building Student Ownership of Mathematical Learning: Elementary

Formative assessment is often defined as assessment for learning. But what does assessment for learning look like in a math classroom? What should teachers be doing? How are students positioned as active and engaged self-assessors to monitor and guide their own learning? This workshop will explore classroom-based formative assessment techniques and tools which can be used to plan, implement, and reflect on both teaching and student learning in your classroom. Goals: Deepen understanding of formative assessment. Understand the role formative…
