Day 1: August 19, 2019

Morning

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.

Check in: 8:00 am to 8:30 am. All seminars are scheduled from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Space is limited to 30 participants. Fee includes lunch & personalized certificate of participation.
