How Do They Relate? Teaching Students to Make Mathematical Connections

About This Webinar

Many students see math content as a series of discrete topics, rather than a landscape of interconnected concepts. Through analysis of classroom examples and student work, participants will: 1) explore relational thinking--an important habit of mind of mathematicians; 2) learn specific teaching strategies to encourage students to seek and scrutinize connections among ideas; and 3) learn how to capitalize on a special class of students’ mistakes--when students overgeneralize, they are attempting connections that don’t hold mathematically. We will engage with rich math problems as we explore how to teach students to make--and break--mathematical connections. Join Tracy Zager for this presentation.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts How Do They Relate? Teaching Students to Make Mathematical Connections
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.
