PD Courses

Tools for Building Math Concepts
an online workshop for teachers of grades 3-5

The Math Forum at Drexel is hosting an online workshop for exploring how technology can help students develop fundamental concepts of multiplication, fractions, division and area through the process of generating data and examining patterns.

Drawing on the benefits of software tools and the strength of human pattern recognition, we will explore ways to address misconceptions and related difficulties that students often run into (e.g. multiplication makes bigger, division makes smaller, comparing unlike terms, confusing area and perimeter).
