I spent a day doing presentations on word problems and teaching of fractions to grades four, five and six teachers from schools in Rye City School District.
The Dobbs Ferry School District consists of three schools: Dobbs Ferry High School, Dobbs Ferry Middle School and Springhurst Elementary School. It is located in the quiet hamlet of Dobbs Ferry, NY, just 20 miles north of New York City. I visited Springhurst for a day and taught three classes, made a presentation on mathematics teaching to the teachers, and talked about the math program in the school to the parents.
This set of slides document the content of the weekend course on the use of anchor problems in enhancing teaching and learning of mathematics.
