Description

Unpack the big ideas that underpin a deep conceptual understanding of the base ten number system and operations, while reflecting on how to help students develop these understandings in a collaborative student-centered classroom environment. Participants will work with a variety of manipulatives, visual representations, and contexts in order to deepen their own thinking about these key ideas, and will also have a chance to consider how to foster a classroom that encourages students to develop strong conceptual understandings in mathematics.
