Building Fact Fluency with Games

Time: 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM
Location: MetLife Building, 200 Park Ave, 17th Fl, New York, NY 10166
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: 03/07/2019 
Time: 08:30 AM to 11:30 AM 
Location: MetLife Building, 200 Park Ave, 17th Fl, New York, NY 10166
Registration is required
Group is limited to 30 participants

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

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.

Cancellation & Refund Policy:

This workshop requires a minimum enrollment of 20 participants. East West Math reserves the right to cancel the workshop in the event of insufficient enrollment. In such event prospective participants will be notified of cancellation as soon as possible.

100% of a paid registration fee will be refunded if an educator cannot participate and notifies us at least 14 days before the day of the course. 50% of the paid registration fee will be refunded if an educator cannot participate and notifies us between 7 and 14 days before a day of the course.

Early Bird Registration - Save $49!  Register by 05/12/19.

Intended Audience

K-5 Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Math Specialists, Teacher Leaders, Administrators and Teaching Assistants

Format and Duration

This online course is designed for convenient asynchronous learning and it will last 6 weeks

Why Singapore Math Online PD?

The benefits of online Professional Development include 24/7 convenience, access to high quality Singapore Math resources, cost and time savings. In addition, participants will benefit from receiving multiple opportunities to clarify mathematical concepts, help develop new ways of thinking about mathematical instruction, deepen understanding of children's cognitive processes and develop pedagogical content knowledge.

Overall, our online PD courses and seminars offer an alternative to onsite professional development to educators for whom Singapore Math onsite learning may be unavailable or too costly.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites

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 course is aligned with the CCSS-M and NYSLS in the domains of Operations and Algebraic Thinking in Grades 2-5.

Activities & Structure

This asynchronous online course is based on the constructivist's pedagogy, which is the same inquiry-based method used in teaching Singapore Math. 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. This course will include weekly assignments, discussions, and fielding questions. Our trainers will moderate group discussions to engage teachers in the learning process and provide feedback to all participants upon completion of the assignments.

Cancellation & Refund Policy:

This course requires minimum enrollment of 15 participants. East West Math reserves the right to cancel the course in the event of insufficient enrollment. In such event prospective participants will be notified of cancellation as soon as possible.

100% of a paid registration fee will be refunded if an educator cannot participate and notifies us at least 14 days before the day of the course. 50% of the paid registration fee will be refunded if an educator cannot participate and notifies us between 7 and 14 days before a day of the course. No refunds will be issued if an educator cannot participate and notifies us less than 7 days prior to a day of the course. Instead of receiving a partial refund, educators could also choose to participate in another seminar at a later date without a charge, provided that space will be available.
