Time: 3:15-4:45 p.m.
 
We know it is critical for students to understand that quantities are more than just numbers when problem-solving, so how do we create opportunities for students to experience this? This virtual session will teach the sense-making routine of Capturing Quantities based on the book, Routines for Reasoning by Kelemanik, Lucenta, and Creighton. We will understand how this routine deepens students’ understandings of quantities in math scenarios and explore avenues of how to achieve this routine in multiple settings. Teachers will have a deepened understanding of the integral role of the Standards of Mathematical Practice when using this routine in their classrooms. Additionally, opportunities to collaborate with teachers from across the state will be incorporated. This session is intended for math teachers in grades 3-8, teachers who work with exceptional children in this grade span content, as well as instructional coaches who work with math teachers.

We know ongoing formative assessment is more critical than ever in math instruction, so how do we make the most of these assessments to guide our instruction? Join this session to explore different assessment strategies that help us make informed decisions about next steps in math learning. We will explore guidance for best practices in this unprecedented time to ensure students are receiving rigorous instruction and learn strategies for checking students’ learning needs with a variety of formative assessments. This program is intended for math teachers and instructional coaches in grades 3-8.
