Part 1: The Learning Theory and Instructional Research Behind Math Problem Solving Today

This is the first of two webinars that will address the role of math problem solving in the intermediate and middle school grades. The overarching theme that guides these two webinars is, “How we connect mathematics to the future world of work, particularly in light of rapidly advancing automation and artificial intelligence?” This first webinar will concentrate on the learning theory that supports the importance of problem solving as a regular feature of classroom instruction (not as problems assigned as homework). How this kind of instruction can lead to improved academic performance will be addressed through comparative, international research.

Communicating in Math—Help Students Justify Their Work with Reflective Thinking

Learn how to promote reflections and reflective thinking in the math classroom to provide students with opportunities to really think about how they use specific problem-solving strategies. By doing so, students will be better equipped to justify their answers because they can explain why they chose the operation, why they chose a particular strategy, and, more importantly, why it makes sense.

Reward Students for More Than Correctness—How Technology Can Help Learners Take On Growth Mindset

Growth mindset suggests that if students are taught that intelligence is malleable—instead of fixed at birth—they will tackle harder problems, persist longer when facing difficult tasks, and, ultimately, learn more. Unfortunately, most educational technology hasn’t caught up with this research. Join us to discuss how technology can help students take on growth mindset and how you can teach students cognitive skills that will serve them in their lifelong journey of learning.
