About This Webinar

by Chris Luzniak

Want to get your students discussing and debating math?! Debate has often been a staple of the humanities classroom, and now you can bring it into your math class! Studies have shown that incorporating debate into the curriculum can significantly increase student achievement and engagement, increasing grades and test scores. Furthermore, the Common Core Standards emphasize "constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others," skills involved with debate! So, come explore several debate and discussion activities, both oral and written, that will help you bring this excitement to your classroom. We will actively experiment with several structures and activities, with concrete examples for all grade levels. Join NYC teacher Chris Luzniak (@pispeak) as we work together to discuss, develop, and debate classroom activities we can all use!

We are math teachers who share what we've learned, cause we don't want our classes to suck the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!

I heard California no longer includes Geometric proof in high school curric. G. Polya states in "How to solve it" under 'Why Proofs" that geometric proofs are "the best and simplest examples of true evidence" and provide "the best opportunity to acquire the idea of strict reasoning. Without this idea, he lacks a true standard with which to compare alleged evidence of all sorts aimed at him in modern life." Do they not agree in CA., or do they deem this not to be a vital part of the high school curric.?
