Student-centered mathematics instruction engages all students through creativity, exploration, and collaboration. It encourages the development of mathematical language alongside conceptual understanding and results in authentic procedural fluency.
The Student-Centered Mathematics Virtual Workshop Series is created to serve as your learning community’s launch into a student-centered math initiative. This experience draws on tenets of active pedagogy to create a learning environment where teachers can dive into some of the pillars of a student-centered math approach, including the leveraging of meaningful math discourse and a problem study orientation. The workshop prioritizes an understanding of these approaches through modeling and experiencing the concepts as learners, and debriefing to discuss steps for implementation. The five 2-hour virtual sessions provide participants with a structure that is job-embedded and continuous, and support participants to try, measure, and learn in a cyclical format as a learning community.
