Workshop Description:

This workshop will focus on key elements that should be present in a math classroom to ensure that:

   þ  students are developing mathematical thinking skills, and the teacher is not merely  attempting to transmit mathematical knowledge to them; 

   þ  the processes that are involved in mathematical thought are present in the classroom activities; 

   þ  there are explicit practices present in the classroom that indicate children are integrating the language, concepts and procedures of math; 

   þ  the needs of different learning personalities of children are being met in the classroom; 

   þ  the mathematical models (concrete and abstract) being used are exact, efficient and elegant in transmitting, discovering and integrating mathematical processes and procedures.
