**6-12 Math: Using Manipulatives for Conceptual Understanding**
Mathematics should be represented in as many ways as possible. From concrete (manipulative)
to pictorial, to abstract to enhance learning.
In two days you will receive hands on experience using many different
manipulatives to cover concepts vertically from middle to high school. *Choose from the following dates:*

Mathematical Problems Using Multiple Representations **
This class will enable you to teach students to learn and master fewer mathematical concepts in greater detail. Students will also learn these concepts using a three-step learning process through concrete, pictorial, and abstract steps. In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips. This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts. Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols. *Choose from the following dates:*

FAL
involves change in the typical Math classroom culture with teachers and
students moving into rather different roles.
Students take more responsibility for their own work, engage in productive struggle, and study fewer tasks, but in greater depth. The teacherâ€™s role is to prompt students to reflect and reason through ideas, and to use questioning to support students' thought processes in obtaining depth of knowledge. Along with FAL you will experience 3 ACT and Exemplar tasks. January 23 Click **HERE** to register ************************************************************************************************
**Using Algebra in Real Life in Middle School **
Algebra is about the unknown and putting real life problems
into equations and solving them.
Unfortunately, Math textbooks go straight to the rules, procedures, and
formulas forgetting that these are real life problems being solved. We will discuss many Algebraic topics that will engage students and develop students' thinking, logic, pattern, and problem-solving by using hands-on activities. *Choose from the following dates:*

How
can we make Geometry interesting and get the students to conceptually
understand the importance of Geometry?
We will apply many standards using multiple research methods to be able to teach Geometry and explore the standards using many hands-on activities. *Choose from the following dates:*
