USM's Fall 2013 Workshops:
Instructional Practices for Common Core Math
Two Sessions Dec. 6-7 (Friday 5-9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.)
In order for our students to master the content described in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, we must take a hard look at our instructional practices. We must ensure that the lessons we design and the practice activities we assign to our students will lead them to becoming “mathematically proficient students.” This workshop will delve into the Standards for Mathematical Practice in order for participants to deepen their understanding and reflect on changes to make in the classroom, regardless of the level taught and the math textbook used.
