Professional Development Opportunities
Number Sense and Reasoning Routines with John SanGiovanni
**This event has been rescheduled with the new date TBD. Please contact the event coordinator with any questions.**
Do your students struggle with reasoning about numbers and operations? Are you looking for practical, high-quality tasks to engage students and ignite discussion? In this engaging session, participants will learn about dynamic, doable activities that engage students in meaningful ways. A collection of ready-for-use resources will be provided and explored so that pursuit of number sense becomes a daily routine. These resources naturally complement each and every lesson in any elementary or middle school mathematics class. Classroom clips of colleagues leveraging these strategies will be shared, and time to create personal examples for participants’ classrooms will be provided.
