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.

We are math teachers who share what we've learned, cause we don't want our classes to suck the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!
