Live Webinar: Accelerating Learning in Middle School Mathematics with Routines for Reasoning

Are you looking for effective and efficient ways to address students’ unfinished learning? In this 90-minute webinar, we will share our current thinking on how to leverage reasoning routines to assess and advance underdeveloped math concepts from the previous year. We will discuss how students’ capacities to reason quantitatively and think structurally hold the keys to building new mathematical understandings and connections. We will focus on critical concepts in middle school mathematics: ratio and proportional relationships, algebratizing arithmetic, rational number concepts, geometric relationships, and/or functions. Join us to explore this building-on-strengths approach to accelerating unfinished learning.
