19 May: Open the Middle

About This Webinar

presented by Michael Fenton

How do you take a closed, uninspiring problem and transform it into an engaging, rich task? Open the middle!

Join the Global Math Department as Michael Fenton leads us through an introduction to the “open middle” genre. We’ll wrestle with sample problems, discuss effective classroom use, tackle a series of “Open Middle Makeover” challenges, and wrap things up with a tour of Robert Kaplinsky’s open middle gold mine (openmiddle.com).

Plus, keep your eyes on #slowmathchat all week for daily open middle challenges.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts 19 May: Open the Middle
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
