Math Rocks! Achieving the Elementary Standards for Mathematical Practice
Explore and create : Creation lab
Sunday, November 29, 9:45–11:15 am PST (Pacific Standard Time)
The Standards of Mathematical Practice ask that our students engage with numbers in a whole new way. Learn about the many amazing and free online resources designed to support the development of the math practice standards while engaging young learners through play, inquiry and authentic tasks.

Even our littlest learners CAN use technology to create and collaborate and SHOW us what they know!
There are many misconceptions about the abilities of young students and technology. Some think that because of still-developing fine motor skills, or because young students are not yet able to read, technology is too difficult for children in the primary grades.
In this workshop, participants will participate in whole-group, small-group, and independent learning activities that will explore how a wide variety of free tools can support Math-based teaching and learning in the primary classroom. They will leave with a number of resources and templates to use in their classroom, as well as participate in number talks and inquiry-based math activities.
Resources will be shared through a set of interactive slides that will contain all links to activities and resources, as well as multiple student samples.
Review the Standards of Mathematical Practice
Collaborate using the online tool, Seesaw
Participate in a Which One Doesn't Belong Seesaw Activity
Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
Model with mathematics using free online digital math manipulatives from the Math Learning Center and NCTM Illuminations.
Share their models with peers and leave feedback
5 minutes: Google Form Survey - Discuss results
10 minutes: Review Math Practices, Concrete to Abstract Sequence of Instruction and conceptual understandings.
5 minutes: Which One Doesn't Belong Activity = answer in chat
10 minutes: Which One Doesn't Belong Activity/other math modeling = Whiteboard.fi
15minutes: Model Seesaw as a tool for developing modeling and feedback in mathematics in a remote learning environment.
15 minutes: Explore the free math tools at mathlearningcenter.org. Build a math model using the Pattern Block, Number Pieces, or Number Line app. Use the "Sharrow"to develop models and share to participants.
If time - Model and Install the Seesaw Reflect App

"The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students."
Instead of focusing on specific content, the Standards for Mathematical Practice are procedures and practices that apply throughout Mathematics education, to shift the focus to deeper understanding and engagement with the content.
