Numeracy and Proportional Reasoning: Assessment and Instruction

Dr. Mary Pittman, CDE Mathematics Specialist will be the speaker for the February 22-23 workshop. Participants of this interactive-workshop will develop a deeper understanding of the foundations of numeracy (including the concepts of proportional reasoning and spatial-visualization) and learn ways to assess these concepts within the Colorado Academic Standards. By the end of the two-day workshop, participants will be prepared to use a free screener/diagnostic assessment tool with their students and interpret results to better inform instruction and intervention practices.

Participants in the summer boot camp, June 17-21, will bring assessment data collected after the February workshop. This assessment data will guide discussions about the development of numeracy for all students. The Colorado Academic Standards and current research on student thinking/problem solving will be the foundation for learning about evidenced-based instructional strategies for struggling mathematics learners.

Early registration closes January 23rd for the February dates: http://www.cocld.org/motp.php
