How do we get students to problem solve when they are not yet proficient readers? This session will guide you in the process of developing the skills students need in order to become problem solvers. How we implement the C-P-A approach with word problems?
Flippin’, Flossin’, and Fidget Spinnin’: Engaging Reluctant Math Students 6-8 Brad Fulton
code: WBFFF68
We’ll get up and out of our seats, get hearts pumping, and learn how to get more oxygen flowing to those middle school brain cells. This generation of students love to learn math from experiences instead of from a worksheet. Learn how to make math their most fun class of the day.
Filling Fact Gaps Grades 3-6 Leslie Arceneaux
code: WLAFG35
“They don’t know their basic facts!” This is the lament heard across our country. Where is the breakdown? Why do so many of our intermediate grade students get “stuck” using inefficient strategies for basic facts? How can we turn this situation around for the students we teach? This session is aimed at answering these questions and more about how we can help our students build efficient and secure knowledge of “basic facts” while remaining true to conceptual/problem solving mathematics pedagogy.
Adding to the Story K-2 Tricia Salerno
code: WTSASK2
Students love books and stories! This session will focus on connecting mathematical concepts to current children’s literature to develop deeper understanding. Participants will leave with a curated booklist and be able to review books in session.
Teaching Area Formulas with Understanding Instead of Tears 6-8 Brad Fulton

General Session Tuesday: Fostering the 8 Mathematical Practices and the Singapore Math Processes K-8 Brad Fulton
code: TBFMPK8
The eight Mathematical Practices – and the Math Processes in Singapore Math – are the foundation for all our teaching in math, but how do we foster them? Our textbooks don’t have a chapter called “The Mathematical Practices”. Learn how to foster these important skills in your students through engaging and empowering activities.
Raising the Ceiling and Lowering the Floor 3-5 Dr. Leslie Arceneaux
code: TLARC35
How can we extend those students who can be stretched while giving an entry point for those students who struggle in the regular math classroom? This session will focus on differentiating both ends of the spectrum. One of the biggest struggles in teaching today is the wide ability canyon and addressing the needs of all students. It can be done!
Square it off K-2 Dr. Makoto Yoshido
code: TMYGEK2
Geometry is always a fun topic topic for students. Let Dr. Yoshido demonstrate how to add rigor without eliminating the fun.
Easily Implemented Differentiation in Middle Grades 6-8 Brad Fulton
code: TBFTD68
Differentiation is effective but not easily implemented…unless you have an activity like this. Using the hundreds chart from primary grades, students of varying abilities will find portals that grant them access to rigorous math content involving integers, algebra, and even proofs as well as fostering the mathematical practices.
Looking Beyond the Bar Model in Grades 3-5 Dr. Leslie Arceneaux
code: TLABM35
The Standards for Mathematical Practices require that students use “varieties of expertise,” such as adaptive reasoning and strategic competence, backed up by conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. These can only be fully developed in classrooms where students are called on to solve non-routine problems regularly. These types of problems should be encountered by all learners if we are to heed the call to make higher mathematics learning accessible to all. Come experience some non-routine thinking for yourself, explore strategies for incorporating non-routine problems into your instruction and discover ways to support students as they encounter them.
Parts, Info and Inches K-2 Tricia Salerno
code: TTSPIK2
Many teachers never “get to” measurement and data in their instruction. Yet these topics are important in order to allow students to apply the concepts they have learned. Without application, retention is often fleeting. Come experience hands-on, real world problem solving.
Leo’s Pattern: An Engaging Exploration Across the Mathematical Landscape 6-8 Brad Fulton
code: TBFLP68
With this in-depth exploration, we’ll use the Fibonacci Sequence to build skills in fraction, decimal, and integer addition and subtraction, while developing problem-solving skills, proportional reasoning, and equation solving. Students of differing ability levels and learning styles can easily access the activity making it a practical strategy for differentiated instruction.
Fractions! Get the Picture? 3-5 Dr. Leslie Arceneaux
code: TLAFP35
Students rarely connect their understanding of whole number multiplication and division to fraction multiplication and division. This session will continue the exploration begun in the whole number session (WLAMM35) to support students as they extend and apply whole number understandings of multiplication and division to fractions and decimals with models.
Fostering Success in Geometry 6-8 Brad Fulton
code: TBFSG68
Research has shown that the brain 3:45moves through five stages in the acquisition of geometric understanding. Unfortunately, most instruction happens at level 1, while high school geometry is taught at levels 4 and 5. Learn how to transition elementary and middle school students sequentially to foster greater understanding and success.
Why Can’t They Retain? K-2 Tricia Salerno
code: TTSYRK2
Proportional reasoning is a crucial topic that must be developed in upper elementary and middle grades.
