Building Mental Math Fluency

Date: 02/09/2019
Time: 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM
Location: The Saratoga Hilton, 534 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Registration is required.

Intended Audience: K-2 Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Math Specialists, Teacher Leaders, and Administrators.

Duration

3 hours

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites

Description

Have you ever been perplexed at how easily and quickly students appear to backslide and forget basic math facts, even after they have shown mastery on timed tests? Why do many continue to use their fingers and counting strategies to add and subtract well into second grade?  This workshop is designed to address and “break” your students’ habits of over-relying on counting strategies to add and subtract to 20.  Mirroring  the scope and sequence of instruction used in Singapore, we will start with a close look at how using ten frames to visualize numbers within 10 and 20 builds mental math muscle, so that decomposing and composing numbers to find sums and differences is (finally!) released from dependence on counting by ones. How is this possible? You will learn a system of classifying and a method of teaching addition and subtraction facts that is based on the structure of base ten numbers.

 

Our goal is for you to leave satisfied that you have learned how to change your instruction by implementing the East West Math Method© of Addition and Subtraction to 10 and to 20, designed specifically to build mental math fluency.  Join us to learn how to use your own set of East West Mastery Card© decks, after gaining enough knowledge and practice to teach and assess fluency with the basic facts to 10 and 20.

 

Note: You will receive decks of the following cards as part of your registration, “Visualizing to 20 Mastery Cards”©, “Addition to 10 Mastery Cards”© “Subtraction to 10 Mastery Cards”© , “Addition to 20 Mastery Cards”©, and “Subtraction to 20 Mastery Cards”©

Singapore Math Number Sense in K-2

Date: 02/09/2019 
Time: 08:30 AM to 11:30 AM 
Location: The Saratoga Hilton, 534 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Registration is required
Group is limited to 30 participants

Intended Audience: K-2 Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Math Specialists, Teacher Leaders, Administrators and Parents

Duration

3 hours

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites

Description

This workshop will focus on understanding of numbers through discussing number story situations in the Singapore Math and East West Math’s materials. Mathematical ideas are best understood when students see a need for their use. The story problem situations help students see relevant uses of math concepts to make sense of what they are learning. They expose students to the major concepts of mathematics as they arise naturally in story problem situations. Participants will explore a variety of such number story situations with the use of manipulatives. Topics covered include understanding cardinality of number; decomposition and composition of numbers (Number Bonds); activities that develop number sense and facts fluency; place value, and teaching addition & subtraction with meaning.

Numerous games & activities for developing mastery of math facts
Painless drills: build math fluency effortlessly
Strategies for increasing mental math skills
Visualization strategies for developing cardinality of numbers
Game centers ready activities
Differentiating your instruction with a wealth of math activities
Formatively assessing students with games

 

Participants will learn how to gamify mathematics learning and immerse their students in the practicing math facts to mastery. Through games, activities and use of manipulatives participants will investigate strategies of helping students visualize, classify, compose, decompose, compare, add, subtract and multiply numbers. Participants will explore subitizing techniques of readily identifying the number of objects in a set without counting. Participants will also explore ways to differentiate instruction and scaffold lessons for struggling learners through implementing game centers that are focused on different areas of math fluency.

 

Special Benefits of Attending - Receive New Manipulatives

These newly designed, kid-friendly and colorful flash mastery cards feature special number combinations and proven patterns for building number sense and fluency of math facts. Each card is color-coded to help you identify areas of strength and weakness. The Master Key is included in the set. There are 7 sets of mastery cards that focus on developing fluency in the following areas: cardinality of numbers to 20; addition & subtraction to 10; addition and subtraction to 20; multiplication set 1: tables of 2, 3, 4 & 5; multiplication set 2: tables of 6, 7, 8, 9 and 1. These flash cards offer children a fun way to master their math facts:

Proven patterns for building fact fluency
Special number combinations
Color coded cards that identify strengths & weaknesses
Game centers ready sets & activities

Description

This mathematically content-focused and rigorous course will provide an introduction to the Bar Modeling method for solving word problems in grades 2, 3, 4 and 5. Bar Modeling is also known as the Singapore Math model method. The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M) and New York State Learning Standards (NYSLS) identify Bar Models as Tape Diagrams and Strip Diagrams. Topics covered include the methodology and rationale for using Bar Models to solve a variety of word problems in mathematics. Participants will be introduced to the part-whole and comparison models for solving problems involving the four operations with whole numbers and use bar modeling heuristic to solve one and two-step word problems. Teachers will learn practical strategies of helping their students use the bar modeling techniques effectively. Differentiating instruction to meet the diverse needs of all learners will be explored. This workshop is aligned to all Singapore-based programs in mathematics that include Primary Mathematics, Math in Focus, Dimensions Math, and Maths No Prolem. This workshop is aligned with the CCSS-M and NYSLS in the domains of Operations and Algebraic Thinking in Grades 2-5.

Activities & Structure

This course is organized into six units of instruction and each unit lasts one week.  East West Math's instructional designers and subject matter experts used the latest technologies, such as computer-mediated communication and Web 2.0 interactive tools, to recreate meaningful, trainer led learning experiences online that promote deep learning and improve the instructional quality of professional development in K-5 mathematics. Throughout each one week course unit, our trainers will provide feedback to all participants on every assignment they complete, in addition to fielding questions and moderating group communications designed to engage teachers in the learning process
