Seeing Things Differently: What Visual Mathematics Adds to the Equation
How do the visuals we provide students support their understanding of math? This session focuses on motivating deeper mathematical thinking by encouraging teachers to draw upon visuals and classroom discourse to support learning. We will use materials that support a vertical progression of concepts through the middle grades to solidify our own understanding and push our thinking about practices in the classroom.
