About This Webinar

Together, we will contrast mathematical questions and tasks that focus on simply “doing” mathematics to questions and tasks that evoke mathematical reasoning. It is ALL about the questions.

Questions/tasks at all levels from Kindergarten through Grade 12 will be explored.

For example, we will contrast a question such as:

Read this number: 4023.
to
What numbers take exactly four words to say?

Or a question such as:
Solve: ¾ x – 2 = 5/8 x + 9
to
Do equations with fractions in them usually have whole number solutions or fraction
solutions?

Global Math Department

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.
