The Mathematician's Journal - Thinking More Deeply

Just as scientists journal to record their hypotheses and document findings, mathematicians benefit from journaling as well. After all, math is a science in itself. Writing about math, while using key vocabulary, is essential to a deeper understanding of more complex mathematical concepts. Students who can effectively write about their methodology in solving, connect new learning to prior knowledge, and reveal new patterns, demonstrate true mastery of the mathematical practice standards.

Thursday, February 6 / 2:30pm-3:30pm
Talk Moves - Facilitating Meaningful Discussion in Mathematics

Confidence in mathematics can be effectively fostered through facilitating meaningful discussion in the classroom. Encouraging students to take risks, share ideas, elaborate, and explain their thinking using precise vocabulary, lends to creative and logical mathematical solutions. This session will demonstrate how "Talk Moves" can address and correct students' misconceptions about their learning, while offering a forum for sharing a variety of methods for solving problems. Connections to effective mathematical journaling will also be addressed.
