A myopic focus on teaching algorithms or a step-by-step, procedural fluency approach to solving mathematical problems is insufficient to transfer the most valuable approach to teaching mathematics to mastery: conceptual understanding. This workshop will build teacher capacity to link concepts to be assessed to engaging, meaningful, real-world mathematical tasks.
It was incredible to listen and work with the Educational Epiphany facilitator today. What an honor! I left saying, "That was THE most useful/relevant PD I have had in my 10 years of teaching...and to be honest, probably the first FUN one as well." Thank you.
I remember listening to some of your presentations. Awesome work and insight - thank you, Dr. Dickey.
