About This Webinar

presented by Alex Overwijk

In my classes, activities are no longer just for introducing concepts or summarizing units. We spiral through the curriculum with activity-based learning, repeating the big ideas to allow students multiple opportunities to extend their learning and demonstrate understanding.

Students make connections between the topics and understand the mathematics in context. Activities often connect two or more strands. Using images, video and manipulatives, we develop students’ abilities to ask good questions and make reasonable guesses. Hands-on activities allow the students to develop mathematical concepts while they ‘play’ with manipulatives. Students work collaboratively in visible random groupings on vertical non-permanent surfaces during the problem solving phase of the activities.This innovative approach has significantly increased student engagement and reduced failure and dropout rates.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts 9 June: Spiraling Deeper with Activity Based Learning in Mathematics
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.
