5 Reasons Students Give Up On Word Problems

and what we can do to fix it.

ONLY ONE LIVE DATE

May 5, 2021

7:00 PM EDT / 4 PM PDT

A replay will be sent out to all those who register.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS WEBINAR
  • Why pre-teaching prevents problem solving. 
  • How we can transform existing resources into engaging tasks.
  • The teacher moves necessary to build resilient problem solvers. 
  • How to deliver problem based lessons so your students think! 
  • Where to find resources to make these changes.

Do you find students give up too easily when working on math problems that are unfamiliar? 

Do you find yourself stuck pre-teaching concepts to students BEFORE they have a chance to truly engage in the problem solving process just so they can “get through the problem”? 

Our constant pre-teaching of concepts is just one of the reasons students struggle with word problems and throw their hands up in frustration.

In this webinar, you’ll learn 5 reasons students struggle with word problems and what we can do to overcome this common math class challenge including how we can engage our students by planning and delivering lessons that ditch the “I Do, We Do, You Do” model of instruction to teaching through rich tasks to leverage student curiosity and promote resilience through problem solving.

WHAT OUR PAST WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY…
I was frustrated with how my students were afraid to “try things out” when problem solving but after working with Jon & Kyle and applying their lesson ideas I now feel prepared to help my students overcome their struggles.
Elana Reiser

Professor of Mathematics & Graduate Mathematics Program Director , St. Joseph's College, Long Island NY.

Working with Jon & Kyle changed my perspective so that I now see math in the world around me and I can bring it into my classroom. The practical classroom-ready resources they share frees me from feeling chained to the textbook everyday. I love seeing how the three-act math tasks can be used and reused to hit so many different curricular areas all in one activity.
Matthew Makuch

4th & 5th grade teacher, Victoria, BC

Taking Jon & Kyle’s online workshop has been one of the most useful professional experiences that I’ve had. I could implement their strategies and provided resources immediately in my classroom leaving me with more time to dedicate to my students and a renewed energy toward teaching.
Sarah-Jane Wells

Grade 7 Math Teacher, Toronto Ontario

“Jon and Kyle offer practical, implement-in-your-class-tomorrow strategies that are accessible to teachers of ALL grades, kindergarten through calculus. From our session, teachers walked away with a wealth of resources, inspired to spark curiosity in their classes.”
Heather Theijsmeijer

Math Curriculum Coach, Sudbury ON
