Facilitating Discussion

Tue, Mar 27, 2018 · 9:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

Facilitating discussion in a mathematics classroom can be challenging. Many students have never been in a classroom where legitimate discussion about mathematical topics has occurred, thus developing such discussions can be awkward and seemingly impossible. Over the last five years, I have been facilitating daily discussions in my Geometry classes using a variety of curricula. In this presentation, I will share what I have learned, from the mindsets I adopted to facilitate discussion, to how I help students develop their own sense of certainty when mathematical concepts are not necessarily known or given, to how students model good "mathematician behavior" for each other, to encouraging risk and failure amongst their peers, and more.

Host Coordinator
I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).
Webinar hosting presenter
Eileen Mooney is a PhD student at Michigan State University in Educational Psychology and Educational Technology and a mathematics teacher at Miss Porter’s School in Farmington, Connecticut. She is interested in both online and face-to-face discourse in mathematics class, in constructing GeoGebra applets to develop meaning making of mathematical terms, in creating equitable learning environments, and in the ways through which common cultural misconceptions of what mathematics is and how it should be taught can change for the better.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Facilitating Discussion
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.
