Jan 15: Math Games

About This Webinar

Join us for an informative session where you can learn about the integration of math games into the classroom. Don't miss this, as you can use these games immediately with your students.

UPDATE: Take a quick math games survey -- http://goo.gl/8YPf8

Here is the tentative itinerary:

-- James Cleveland (@jacehan): the difference between trivia-style games, where the math leads to the game, and games where the math IS the game

-- John Golden (@mathhombre): the BEST math game ever, Decimal Pickle, Eleusis - an induction game, game making, and quick glance at a framework for evaluating games

-- Elizabeth (@cheesemonkeysf): a practical overview of the Life on the Number Line game to help build conceptual understanding and procedural fluency of real number representations

Speaker Bios:

-- John is a math ed professor at Grand Valley State University working mostly in preparation of K-12 teachers. He is a big believer in the math-games connection,
and uses them in teacher ed classes, regular math classes, and every chance he gets in K-12 classrooms, in particular with Jeff Schiller's 5th grade students the last few years.

-- @Cheesemonkeysf (Elizabeth) teaches Algebra 1, Math Support, and Math Intervention at middle school in the SF Bay Area.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Jan 15: Math Games
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.
