Workshop: Beyond the Foundations, Applying Essential Mathematical Learning in Grades 3-6 - Toronto, ON

Date: 

Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 09:00 to 12:30

Beyond the Foundations, Applying Essential Mathematical Learning in Grades 3-6

This workshop is geared to Junior classroom teachers who often struggle to fill in gaps while teaching curricular expectations that assume knowledge is intact and ready to apply.  Through a mixture of hands-on activity, group discussion and resource exploration, participants will learn how to recognize gaps, reinforce foundational knowledge and, structure students' learning experiences so that attention is focused on vital mathematical structures and ideas that will increase critical thinking and creative problem solving abilities.

Workshop: Grades 7 & 8: Critical Transition Years - Toronto, ON

Date: 

Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 13:00 to 16:30

Grades 7 & 8: Critical Transition Years

This workshop is geared to Intermediate Teachers who often have large gaps to fill in their students’ learning, while covering the grade-level curricular expectations.  Through a mixture of hands-on activity, group discussion and resource exploration, workshop participants will learn how to engage their learners with purposeful math skill-building activities, channel their attention to vital structures and ideas in mathematics, and to further develop skills in goal-setting, organized planning, productive follow-through and reflective practice.  Participants will also learn the most essential math skills that are needed for students who will stream into academic or applied mathematics in high school.

Workshop:Building Computational Fluency from Kindergarten to Grade 3 - St. Catherines, ON

Date: 

Thursday, July 25, 2019 - 09:00 to 13:30

Building Computational Fluency from Kindergarten to Grade 3

This workshop is intended for school educators, tutors and parents of Kindergarten to Grade 3 learners. Computational fluency relies on flexible thinking and efficient use of computational strategies which are deeply understood and readily explained.  In this workshop we will explore a strategic progression from early counting to understanding numbers and number relationships, to fact fluency.

Webinar: Introduction to JUMP Math (Part 1)

Date: 

Monday, July 29, 2019 - 19:30 to 21:30

This is part of a two-part webinar geared for educators eager to learn more about the JUMP Math approach and classroom resources. Through a partnership between the University of Calgary, Werklund School of Education researchers, and JUMP Math, Math Minds created an approach to teaching mathematics that is research-informed, theory-driven, and outreach-oriented. This webinar is aligned to the research findings from Math Minds, presenting a number of proven methods that teachers can use to strengthen and sustain mathematics ability and performance, improve student confidence, and boost student enjoyment of math.

JUMP Math 2 Day Summer Workshop - Medicine Hat

Date: 

Tuesday, July 30, 2019 - 09:00 to Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - 15:30

 

Join Gael James and Donna Prato in Medicine Hat, AB for 2 days of Professional Development
from 9:00am to 3:30pm Mountain Time.  Click here for a map 
Cost:  $125 per day​

  • Registration will close at noon Eastern Time on Monday, July 29th
  • Resources will be available for purchase with registration until noon Eastern Time on Thursday, July 18th
  • Lunch and snacks will be included.  Gael and Donna will follow up after registration to find out about allergies/dietary restrictions

Day one will be an introduction that takes an intensive look at the components of JUMP Math: Teacher Resources, Assessment and Practice books, Mental Math, Number Talks, and Digital Lesson Slides and how they work together to develop confidence and skills in both teachers and students. We will also look at the supporting research and philosophy that underpin this math resource. Day One is for teachers who have not had JUMP Math PD in the past, or who would like to have a refresher.

Day two. We will spend the morning exploring the RaPID model developed by researchers from the Math Minds project from the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary. This model allows us to examine how to identify key mathematical concepts (called Critical Discernments) in JUMP Math lessons, how to assess student’s learning of these; and the next steps for the teacher. The afternoon will be spent planning for the coming year with plenty of time for individual questions.

You are welcome to sign up for the first day, the second day, or both days.

If you would like to only attend the second day you must have already attended a full-day Introduction to JUMP Math PD so as to ensure that you are already familiar with the resources.  Please contact Gael (gael.james@jumpmath.org) or Donna (donna.prato@jumpmath.org) for a ‘day two only’ code to use at registration.
