Building a Bridge to Grade-Level Math in MS & HS

Tue, Jan 11, 2022 · 9:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

As secondary math teachers know, a history of struggle in math class starts to snowball as students move from K-5 to middle school, and then into high school. A lack of prerequisite skills makes it difficult for students to engage in grade-level learning, and over time many students come to believe they aren’t “good at math” -- and that they will *never* be. In this session, participants will learn a proven, 5-part process educators can use to teach rigorous content while "bridging the gap," both in terms of students' confidence and understanding the mathematics itself.

Recommended Grade Level: 6 - 12

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Building a Bridge to Grade-Level Math in MS & HS
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.
