K5 Mathematical Reasoning & Problem Solving- Spotlight on Whole Number Operations and Place Value with Dr. Yeap Ban Har
Number sense and place value are the foundations of Singapore’s approach to teaching mathematics – the approach that is responsible for Singapore’s rise to the top of the world in international tests of students’ achievement in mathematics. Participants of this two-day workshop will learn the instructional strategies and theory needed to develop their students’ skills and understanding to levels they never thought possible.
The first day will focus on topics such as addition and subtraction, number bonds, and place value concept building. The second day will begin with multiplication and division and close with place value strategies and bar modeling. Truly effective professional development is content-focused and begins with teachers learning as students. The trainer will guide teachers through demonstration lessons and follow with a thorough analysis of the strategies and theories involved. Implicit in all of our workshops is teaching with problem-solving, the C-P-A approach, journal writing, and collaboration.
