P230-7469.1F18 - Motivating Students to get 'Hooked' on Mathematics

Course Details
Course Description:
Teaching mathematics in the 21st century requires that instruction aims to help students develop conceptual understanding, then it must make explicit the crucial relationships that lie at the heart of such understanding. (from NCTM).

As the pressures to improve student achievement have move to the forefront of education, it is important to recognize and implement strategies and innovations that can lead to student success. Traditional learning models, like those many of us grew up with, are being transformed. The New York City Mathematics Project (NYCMP) collaborates with teachers, coaches, staff developers, administrators and superintendents to trans-form the ways in which mathematics is perceived, taught and assessed in urban classrooms. This course will focus upon an assortment of methods and activities designed to help motivate students and keep them motivated throughout. Through the use of variety of instructional strategies and platforms, teachers will be ex-posed to methods that encourage their students to explore their own learning and to make connections to real life. Participants will learn how to support diverse learners in the classroom by using technology, differen-tiation, scaffolding, student-centered instruction, discovery and more.
