Mathematics Intervention: Structures and Strategies to Support Struggling Learners

Struggling learners deserve programs that help them catch up. Yet typically support classes focus on below grade level skills – an insidious form of tracking that does little to help students to do better in their core mathematics class.  Based on research and reality, we will explore six principles that may promote shifts in traditional thinking about mathematics intervention, experience principles in the context of proportional reasoning, and leave ready to address this important equity issue.

Talk Less, Listen More

Listening is one of the most important tools in a teacher’s toolbox. In this session, we’ll explore a variety of rich mathematical tasks, focused on early number, operations, and equality concepts that provide authentic opportunities for us to learn to better listen to our students. We’ll also engage in some mathematical activities as an exercise in learning how to truly listen to our student’s ideas and conceptions.

Cultural and Linguistic Diversity: Resources for Teaching and Learning

This presentation centers the idea of diversity as a resource for mathematics teaching and learning. The focus is on how to build on the diversity present in our classrooms (in particular, language and cultural diversity) to enhance the mathematics learning opportunities for all of us (teachers, students, and parents). Marta will discuss the concept of valorization of knowledge and how that may affect how we interact with diversity in the classroom.

6.7 Essential Understanding of Geometry for English Language Learners

This presentation shows a set of tasks that support the centrality of geometry. The formula for the area of a triangle and the Pythagorean theorem are explored using decomposition and rearrangement. The blackline masters have been designed in different language proficiency levels without modifying math goals so that students can respond to them in accordance with their language acquisition stage. Social and analytic scaffolding are interrelated, and mathematical discourse is focused on the key practices of argumentation, strategic usage of tools, and attention to precision.

6.8 Using Discourse to Access Language and Mathematics for English Learners

Extensive use of discourse in the classroom is a key practice to support the learning of English while learning mathematics. English learners are in varying stages of English language development, and discourse will increase their productive (oral and written) and receptive (listening and reading) language functions in addition to their comprehension of mathematics concepts. The Standards for Mathematical Practice expect students to reason, construct viable arguments, and critique the reasoning of others, among other practices. Thus, classroom teachers need to provide support for students’ English language development to engage in these practices.

In this webinar, Dr. Susie W. Håkansson shares the rationale for using discourse in the classroom, the role of productive and receptive language functions in the learning of mathematics, as well as examples of how to increase discourse in the classroom. The presentation covers: Challenges in learning English Using discourse (including the role of productive and receptive language functions), Language in the mathematics classroom, Cognitively-demanding mathematics tasks, Examples of discourse in the classroom, Equity, and excellence Learn how to support your English learners while they are learning mathematics. This recorded webinar is designed for mathematics educators, administrators, coaches, classroom teachers, as well as mathematics teacher educators.

Our Questions and Their Discourse are the Keys to Their Engagement and Learning


Language rich classrooms where students are actively engaged in thinking, communicating, and problem-solving because the questions we ask and the discourse we enable are the classrooms in which children thrive. We'll look at a range of examples of the questions that stimulate discourse and the amazing things that emerge when an answer is only a first step.

Engaging Every Learner Through Hands-On Instruction

A solid understanding of fractions is critical for student success in mathematics. The language of fractions is precise and often confusing to learners. Manipulative models provide a structure for helping students master the vocabulary of fractions and see the connections between whole number operations and fraction operations. This workshop will share strategies for using manipulatives to model and build a conceptual understanding of fraction operations.

STEM’ify Your Community: STEM for ALL and ALL for STEM

Stamford has instituted the Stamford STEMfest, which is a day of free activities centered around STEM. This festival is modeled after Ireland's Maths Week. The Stamford STEMfest goals include: 1) building an awareness about STEM for students and their parents, 2) demonstrating to students how much fun these disciplines can be, 3) showing students how these disciplines are inherent in many of the things we do every day, and 4) having students learn about the career and college opportunities in STEM. This event has been extremely successful in getting all students and the community to learn about STEM. The event is now being done in other cities around the country. Learn about this event, how it has impacted the community, and how you can get involved!

Making Sense and Creating Connections with Transformations

One of the new content highlights of the CCSS-M is the use of transformations. During this session, teachers will make sense of their definitions, their progression, and the different roles they play in mathematics, not just in geometry. Teachers will be invited to reflect on the different modalities used to maintain rigorous but accessible discourse and to discuss how to implement these approaches with their own students.
