These are the Apps that I used during the sessions.
After Greg did the Opening Keynote, I met with K-2 to discuss critical concepts in counting, addition and subtraction
We looked at what the critical concepts are, how to develop them and what are the underlying competencies required.
Standard algorithms in subtraction are essentially number bonds.
Grades 3-6 looked at operations involving while numbers with a focus on multi-digit multiplication and division. We looked at a lesson to learn a new concept and a practice lesson.
Long division is essentially partial quotients.
Must drill and practice be Low level? That's the question we explored in this interesting problem. The class made a discovery too (see red).
A general elective on lesson planning closes Day 1
K-2 did a session on journaling and formative assessment
My closing keynote is to have Teachers understand the critical role of struggles in learning. In performing the five core competencies in math, struggle is needed. For example, to visualise requires struggle as it involves seeing things that are not obvious.
