This morning (January 31) we had our follow-up session with the 2014 workshop participants. We heard a lot of great things going on in teachers’ classrooms, and we’re excited that PMI could help make that difference. Thanks to those of you who made it up to State College to share your thoughts.
The Resources page has been updated with many of the materials we talked about today, but I’ll repeat them here:
- Nix the Tricks
Highlighting the pedagogical pitfalls of jumping to the shortcuts, this is a collection of math teachers’ “tricks,” why they’re dangerous, and what should be used instead.
- Math Mistakes
Collects examples of student errors and provides a forum to discuss their roots.
- Common Core Performance Coach, Mathematics.
This series was given as a good source of problems to use in class.
- Resources on developing a “growth mindset”
