The Math Forum @ Drexel is one of Maryland Public Television’s partners in their Mathlanding project. Mathlanding is designed with elementary math specialists and teachers in mind. It’s a dynamic resource to help support the professional development needs of elementary educators in building mathematical knowledge and instructional practice.
We thought a useful contribution from the Math Forum to this project would be to start discussions about the Mathematical Practices focused on Kindergarten through Grade 5 classrooms. What are teachers doing to encourage their students to develop these practices? What challenges have they encountered? What successes have they experienced? What ideas are they willing to try? Are there resources we can share?
