July 15–19, 2013
Facilitator Training Learn about the structure and style of the Think Math! K–5 mathematics curriculum as you prepare to teach it. See the growth of arithmetic concepts and skills and how they connect to the development of algebraic thinking and language. Experience mathematics and think about how these ideas translate to practice. In workshop sessions for grades K–2 and 3–5, you will learn effective approaches to elementary mathematics content areas; address key implementation issues such as differentiated instruction, pacing, and assessment; and reflect on your role in helping all students grow mathematically. By the end of the five days, you will leave with a new understanding of the Think Math! curriculum and strategies to build students’ computational fluency while deepening their conceptual understanding and problem solving abilities.
Our five-day workshop is ideal for teachers, coaches, specialists, and administrators who are using Think Math! or who would like to learn about the mathematics and pedagogy of the curriculum.
