Invisible Mathematics

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Mathematics, for many students, is a subject devoid of meaning and sense-making.  This is partly due to the invisible nature of its subtleties. 
Invisible mathematics are numbers or operations which are hidden from view. Invisible mathematics act as obstacles for students and must be addressed for students to make sense of mathematics and persevere in problem solving. 
In this session, we will explore the invisible nature of the number 1, the invisible operations, and the invisible meaning in some common mathematical notations. We'll cover topics relevant to multiple grades and address student misconceptions that result from a misunderstanding of the invisibilities. We'll also explore a great resource for unearthing student misunderstanding of mathematical notation.
