Learning through problem solving promotes deep, coherent mathematics understanding. It is a critical tool for creating a highly effective learning environment for students. Through the use of strong routines, students learn how to take an active role in reasoning and sense making. Active learning will help students understand new mathematical concepts and relationships as they progress in their school careers.

Attend this web seminar to learn how the use of routines in mathematics instruction has the potential to significantly increase student success and deepen learning in mathematics, from a professor of education at California State University, Fullerton who specializes in middle school mathematics instruction.

Topics will include:

  • How routines help students engage in rigorous mathematical discourse and problem solving
  • The role of the teacher and the student in each part of the Think-Share-Compare routine
  • Practical instructional strategies for building an active mathematics learning environment
