The Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Maine (ATOMIM) is hosting eight sessions across the state this fall to allow high school math teachers to discuss “Reasoning and Sense-Making in the Classroom.”
The sessions — all of which last from 4 to 7 p.m. and offer refreshments — focus on using the Common Core state standards for math in the classroom and tactics for asking students simple questions that help them develop reasoning and problem-solving skills.
The sessions will address tasks from algebra, geometry and statistics.
The workshops cost $5 for ATOMIM members and $20 for non-members. Visit http://atomim.wildapricot.org to register for the session of your choice:
