Workshop #257: Teaching Students the Way They Learn 
Workshop #258: 
Workshop #257: Teaching Students the Way They Learn 

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTSHow many times have we heard, “When am I ever going to use this?” This workshop uses motivating activities, interesting puzzles, and realworld data to help students better understand and see the relevance of school math, while addressing key mathematical skills and concepts related to the national mathematics standards. Connections will be made between mathematics and science, social studies, literature, and art by using realworld applications that focus on a variety of learning styles. Students engaged in these activities will begin to see that “math is everywhere”— it is a way of thinking, solving problems, and is a significant part of their real world. Topics
All teachers, including those teaching developmental curricula or math education teachers, should benefit from this workshop. 

Dates: November 7, 2015

Workshop #258: Strategies for Teaching Fractions 

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTSNo matter how you slice it, fractions are foundational. This workshop engages participants in instructional strategies that promote deep student understanding of fraction concepts and operations addressed by the Common Core State Standards. Each topic is aligned to specific Standards for Mathematical Content. A package of guiding questions will be provided to help teachers engage their students with each of the Standards for Mathematical Practice. A comprehensive collection of student error patterns will be examined. Participants explore why students may make those errors. Participants learn how to use error patterns to inform instruction, pinpoint intervention, and stimulate student thinking. The workshop addresses the use of estimation, alternative algorithms, instructional games, handson activities, and guided discovery lessons. The strategies support instruction of both regular and specialneeds students. Topics
