2-Day JUMP Math Workshops in British Columbia

Workshop Dates

DAY 1: JUMP Math in the Classroom: Closing the Gap!

JUMP Math is founded on the beleif that all children can earn math and all teachers can become eperts in the subject.  JUMP has developed an evidence-based approach to instruction called "Guided Discovery" that we know will help you nurture the potential in every student.

This Day 1 workshop's aim is to show you how to effectively make the most of JUMP Math's Teacher's Guides to raise levels of student engagement, boost confidence, close the gap between students and instill a deep understanding and ove of math in your students.

  • Explore effective strategies to develop Mental Math Fluency
  • Look at various ways to develop confidence building and resilience in students through rigorous instruction and directed explorations of math topics.
  • Learn the art of scaffolding more challenging topics so as to develop conceptural understanding.

DAY 2: Numeracy Skill Building and Problem Solving Strategies Used in JUMP Math

New research in cognitive science shows that students are more likely to become engaged and successful problem solvers if the teacher breaks chalenges into well-scaffolded steps and gives continuous feedback and adequate pratice and review.

By raising the bar incrementally, beachers can help students learn to persevere so they can eventually tackle more complex problems independently.

Day 2 is all about helping you develop a deeper understanding of JUMP Math techniques to develop strong numeracy and problem-solving skills.

We will guide you to explore topics related to systematic search, making models and diagrams, making simpler versions of a problem using patterns.  discover how easy it is to raise the bar using bonus questions.  Also how to put on a Math fair at your school.
