A Workshop for Middle - School Math Teachers
1 day / 7 hours
This workshop plays with topics like directed numbers and number sense; properties of place-value and connections to polynomial work; beliefs of equality; solving equations and simultaneous equations; role of area throughout algebra; exponents and roots; fractions, decimals, and the construction of irrational numbers, deep consequences of the Pythagorean theorem, elements of geometry and more! It will help teachers understand how to keep mathematics true and genuine and to ultimately show how mathematics can beautifully shine for itself.
