In this session teachers will design math tasks with free, web-based virtual manipulatives. Participants will craft experiences that encourage inquiry, sense-making and productive math conversations. Discover where to find virtual manipulatives and how to use them in such a way to develop students' mathematical habits of mind and assess student understanding. Whether teaching remotely or in-person these dynamic representations help students "see" mathematics, connect big ideas and reason about mathematics.
Participants will receive two professional learning units for participating.
Attendance is limited to 30 participants; DC public and charter school teachers and staff will have priority for registration. A waitlist will be created once registration reaches capacity. Participants must register using their work email.
