April 26, 2018, 5:30-7:00 p.m. - CRMC Spring Fling 2018:  Putting the MATH in steaM

This after school event is open to teachers in all grade levels - elementary, middle school, and high school - and to anyone who is interested in mathematics education.

Come to Spring Fling at the Math Collaborative and let us help you put the MATH in steaM!  Enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres while you network with friends and peers. Visit grade level specific hands-on activity stations and/or mini-presentations presented by area classroom teachers.  Return to your classroom with new ideas and/or a make & take project.

Cost:  $10.00

Please register no later than April 23 so that we will have a correct number for food and materials.

 

May 1, 2018, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. - Running to Review, Grades 3-5

This workshop is open to any teacher in grades 3-5.

Come ready to experience activities that will exercise your students' math muscles. We will share ideas for engaging lessons that will help increase participation and positive behaviors. Come to the workshop and receive strategies and lesson ideas. Take the time to rejuvenate yourself and return to your classrooms ready to wrap up the year with energy and positive environments.

We will provide morning coffee, but lunch is on your own.

Registration is $100, but may be reduced if your system has purchased a CRMC Service Package.

May 1, 2018, 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. - There's a Visual Representation for That!

This workshop is open to any mathematics teacher in grades 6-8.

Using manipulatives can be difficult when class time is limited and class sizes are large. The use of online applets is a great option to help students visualize mathematics. Improve student engagement by using more than just symbolic representations -- incorporate more visual representations in your math instruction. Bring the electronic device of your choice (connect via CSU Wi-Fi) to explore free, online applets. "SEE" the importance of visual representations to the teaching and learning of mathematics.

We will have coffee in the morning, but lunch will be on your own.

Registration is $100, but may be reduced if your system has purchased a CRMC Service Package.

June 4-8, 2018, 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. - The "Why" Comes Before the "How" -- Conceptual Understanding Precedes Procedural Understanding

These workshops are open to any mathematics teacher in grades K-12.

CLICK ON THE TOPIC TITLE TO REGISTER FOR THAT WORKSHOP.

The "why" must precede the "how" – instruction for conceptual understanding is foundational to procedural fluency. Procedural understanding is more than just following an algorithm "learned" via memorization; students' math skills must be fluent, flexible, and accurate. Teaching conceptually, versus procedurally, is a paradigm shift for some teachers. Teachers must develop conceptual understanding in order to value a "why" before the "how" instruction model.

Participants will improve their mathematical content knowledge to better impact students' learning. Activities will focus on using and connecting multiple representations – language, pictures, physical models, written symbols, and contextual situations. Teachers will engage in rich problem solving tasks using hands-on models, technology, and multiple representations. During vertical alignment sessions, teachers will work with peers in different grade levels.

Registration is $160 for teachers in systems purchasing a CRMC Service Package.  Registration is $200 for teachers in all other systems.
