Attend these session presented by Valerie Johse:

Thursday, February 13 | 10:35-11:45 am
Games to Extend Learning in Mathematics

Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning (Fred Rogers). Increase teacher effectiveness and achieve higher student outcomes through the use of games that push students to think at higher levels. Teachers use games to practice and reinforce learning but are your games fresh? Do they connect to the mathematics being taught? Do they require students to use critical thinking and thinking in different ways? In this session, participants will experience games that address geometry, basic operations, place value, and more if time allows. Let's have fun while learning!

Thursday, February 13 | 2:45-3:30 pm
Inquiring Minds Want to Know - Inquiry and Mathematics

Take your mathematically talented students to higher levels through effective use of an inquiry approach. Design student learning beginning with an engaging activity that leads to mathematical questions for students to investigate, communication with their peers, and mathematical discoveries that students understand and remember. Why does that number card trick work? How are the digits of number related to whether or not you can create a palindrome in one step? Why is the product smaller than the factors when multiplying decimals? Challenge your students to think beyond!
