Singapore Math & Lesson Planning

This workshop begins with the Singapore instructional model, moves to lesson planning, and then to unit planning. Major content for grades 3-5 will be examined closely, with emphasis placed on the Common Core Standards in Mathematics. Teachers will leave with a fully planned unit for the beginning of school. Participants will learn how to prepare lessons and make effective use of instructional materials. Singapore Math Teacher Editions, textbooks, workbooks and other relevant materials will be used.

Afternoon

Intro to Bar Modeling

This mathematically content-focused and rigorous workshop 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 course is aligned with the CCSS-M and NYSLS in the domains of Operations and Algebraic Thinking in Grades 2-5.

 

Day 2: August 20, 2019

Morning

Multiplication & Division: Concepts & Calculations 

Participants will learn strategies to build student understanding of multiplication and division and how to help students connect the model to the abstract. The use of place value mats and base ten blocks, as well as the area model will be emphasized to connect conceptual understanding to the algorithm.

Afternoon

How to Use Models to Represent & Solve Fractions Problems

Participants will learn how to represent fractions with fractional models, the meaning of fractions, how fractions are composed of unit fractions, helping students to understand fractions as numbers, operations with fractions and mixed numbers, how to make the connections between operations with whole numbers and operations with fractions, and activities and games that deepen students understanding of fractions.

Day 1: August 19, 2019

Morning

Topic: Singapore Math Number Sense with Activities & Manipulatives

This workshop will focus on how to use Singapore Math resources to develop strong Number Sense in K-2. Participants will learn about how to help young students understand numbers through discussing and exploring number story situations with manipulatives. 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 use of Singapore Math resources, activities, and manipulatives.

Afternoon

Topic: Math Games, Activities, Fluency & Assessments

Participants will learn engaging games and activities for helping different style and abilities learners practice math facts to mastery. Strategies will be shared for accommodating visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners via games and activities with the color-coded method for mastering math facts. Participants will use the color-coded flash cards to play in teams; search for and identify patterns; organize related groups of facts; collaborate during activities; engage in conversation about games; color facts learned and to be learned; demonstrate games in front of a class. Participants will identify strategies designed to increase learner engagement and purposeful collaboration that allow for rigorous and equitable mathematics instruction. 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.

Day 2: August 20, 2019

Morning

Topic: Teaching for Problem Solving & Developing Deep Understanding with CPA

Participants will learn how to:

  • teach story problems in math classrooms using CPA
  • facilitate discussions to teach for deep understanding of math concepts
  • use the CPA approach to construct student understanding in a variety of problem situations
  • make connections between manipulatives and bar models
  • use math journals to teach for understanding and formatively assess students

Afternoon

Topic: Place Value System, Mental Math and Multi-digit Addition & Subtraction

Participants will learn how to:

  • help students understand place value system using manipulatives and place value charts
  • practice mental math strategies to develop fluency & deep understanding
  • engage in relevant activities & games
  • elicit students’ prior knowledge to help develop multi-digit addition and subtraction strategies
  • compare multi-digit numbers with understanding of relative relationships (e.g., 1,000 is made of 10-hundreds or 100-tens)
  • help students understand the process of multi-digit addition and subtraction calculations with use of manipulatives
