Helping Students See How Graphs Work

April 17, 2018 at 09:00:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

Students see graphs in their daily lives. Students interpret and create graphs in math classes. But, what do students think graphs represent? I share how we can guide students to see beyond what graphs look like, and help students to understand how graphs can represent relationships. We will explore an interactive graphing activity that I developed in collaboration with Dan Meyer and the Desmos team. Three key takeaways: How students think about task attributes matters; Focus students on the whole and the parts; Two graphs are better than one.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Helping Students See How Graphs Work
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.
