In this interactive session participants will engage in mathematical routines that can be utilized in the classroom to build number sense, develop inquiry, and engage students in the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice. Ideal for K-8 educators, participants will leave with the structures and resources for hundreds of flexible and easy-to-implement activities to use on Monday.
Sarah Bent is the Assistant Director of Mathematics Leadership Programs at Mount Holyoke College. In this role, she runs the Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics program and designs and facilitates professional learning opportunities for teachers and math coaches. Sarah also teaches math and math education graduate courses at the college. Prior to her work at the college, Sarah was a third and fourth grade teacher in Chesterfield, Massachusetts and an adjunct faculty member at Westfield State University. She recently served as a collaborating teacher for a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded research project, “Using Routines as a Strategy for Developing Elementary Students’ Conception of Proof.” Her current interests include the role of context in supporting conceptual understanding and mathematical modeling in science class through different levels of inquiry.
