Truly understanding mathematics requires students to think critically, develop their own understandings and solve problems worth solving. While direct instruction has its place, deeper learning requires a shift of the locus of mathematical control from the teacher, as the expert, to the students as partners in the learning process. 

Using research from John Hattie's "Visible Learning in Mathematics" and NCTM's "Principles to Actions," you'll explore multiple strategies to increase student communication and collaboration; create meaningful math experiences that encourage deep thinking; and give students the fortitude to persevere. Through review of various learning tasks, we will consider ways to develop Surface, Deep or Transfer learning. These will be connected to the Math Practice Standards and reflect the critical areas for middle school math including ratios and proportional reasoning, expressions and equations and functions and geometry. Come join in and engage in sample activities, problem solving and sharing your own experiences; you'll leave with a digital toolkit with specific strategies and problems to use with your students.
