Course Description

Credit Validation for Number Sense Summit Participants Only

Educators will develop strategies to develop conceptual and procedural understanding of math content in elementary grades. This year all sessions fall into 2 tracks–Back to the Basics and Beyond the Basics. The Back to the Basics track is geared toward educators who haven’t had a lot of exposure to math professional development. We will go all the way back to developing part-part-whole relationships and build up to understanding multiple strategies for each operation with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. The Beyond the Basics sessions are geared toward educators who are ready for more!
