THE

TORTOISE & HARE

How Math Class Missed The Moral and What We Can Do To Fix It

ONLY ONE LIVE DATE

JANUARY 12, 2021

4:00 PM EDT / 1 PM PDT

When you think back to moments from your mathematical learning experience, what comes to mind? 

Do your memories tend to feel more like the recalling of facts, steps, and procedures or do they feel more like the process of problem solving where you were routinely left to think deeply through a productive struggle? 

Why does it seem that our experiences from math class tend to be a case of either/or?

When exploring new approaches to teaching and learning mathematics, we are often confronted with very absolute views that pit one extreme against the other. 

Ideas such as:

direct instruction vs. inquiry lessons;

grades vs. grade-less assessment practices;

homework vs. no homework;

hands-on collaborative tasks vs. independent worksheet practice.

Regardless of what pedagogical approach you wish to explore, it’s a sure bet that you’ll find someone out there who believes it is poor practice. 

Join Kyle & Jon as they explore the two systems for thinking in the brain and how mathematics education often only serves one.

They’ll share the practical classroom lessons and routines that not only help you find the right balance in your mathematics program, but will also help your students to define an identity that they value in your math class.

  • What we need to cultivate SLOW & FAST thinkers in math class and how to do it; 
  • Why math class rewards extroverts and how to structure our math class to engage ALL students on an introvert / extrovert spectrum; 
  • How to teach with problem based lessons that are accessible to all learners;
  • How to help students conceptually understand their basic math facts.
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.

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.

“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.”
