Sep 30, 2019 | Podcast | 4 comments

LISTEN NOW…

Today we speak with the recovering traditionalist Christina Tondevold. Christina previously taught mathematics traditionally much like we did and Now she gets to work with teachers in developing students’ mathematical understandings in ways that are not limited by the traditional ways of doing and teaching mathematics through her site BuildMathMinds.com where you can get PD in Your PJs. 

Stick with us as we learn What is number sense and why is it so important, What are the 4 early numeracy concepts that all teachers should know and understand how to teach? What are the 4 number relationships? And finally what steps you can take to ensure you learn fundamental mathematical progressions underlying students’ understandings of number sense. 

You’ll Learn

 

  1. Are we creating rule followers or creative questioners
  2.  What is number sense and why is it so important.
  3. How can we help students develop proficiency with number sense
  4. What are the 4 number relationships?
  5. How to avoid the rush to strategies on our way to the algorithm

In our six module (16 week) online workshop you’ll learn how to build and adjust your own lessons that engage students, build deeper understanding of math, and promote resilience in problem solving.

PERFECT IF YOU TEACH GRADES  3 through 10

We’ll release one module each week for the first 6 weeks. Then you’ll have another 10 weeks to work through the content ON YOUR SCHEDULE!

    Such an amazing episode! Where can I find the links to the books that Christina referenced? Also, she mentioned someone that works with numberless word problems. Could you link that in the show notes as well?

    Such an amazing episode. I love Christina Tondevold. Her story reminds of my oldest today, I was tell her sister and her that they are one year and 9 months apart. My oldest say and thought and said so we are one year and three quarters. She is in 4th grade and she might not know exactly the fraction of it put she used her number sense since K. It was just amazing on how much she is flexible with numbers.
