11.01.17 Embolden Your Inner Mathematician: Building Procedural Fluency from Conceptual Understanding #TrinityLearns

Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding.

Effective teaching of mathematics builds fluency with procedures on a foundation of conceptual understanding so that students, over time, become skillful in using procedures flexibly as they solve contextual and mathematical problems.

06.02.17 Summer PD #TrinityLearns

As part of our practice, we offer in-house summer professional learning around literacy and numeracy.

There are two strands that both focus on the workshop model and conferring with students in literacy and in math.  Tiffany Coleman (@TColemanReads)and Lisa Eickholdt (@LisaEickholdt) will each join us on June 5th and 6th, respectively, to further our work in conferring.  On June 7th, Marsha Harris (@MarshaMac74) will round out the literacy work with a session on differentiation.  Jill Gough (@jgough) and Becky Holden (@bholden86) will facilitate three days of interactive math learning so that it parallels the work in literacy.
For our colleagues not able to join us, we will share our plans each day next week.
Here’s the big picture view of the professional learning days:
 Our essential learnings are based on ALT’s goal for all faculty-learners:

05.10.17 FSLT Math Agenda #TrinityLearns

Monday, May 10, 2017 at 3:10:3:45 (part of FSLT meeting)
Location: Community Room
Vision and Direction for the 2017-18 school year
Kerry Coote, Kristi Story, Becky Holden, Caroline Tritschler

Goals:

  • To learn more math in order to pass it on to our grade level teams
  • To scale our learning to our teams
  • To deeply understand the Standards for Mathematical Practices
  • To deepen, differentiate, and extend learning for the students in our classroom (Instructional Core goal)

Action Steps:

  1. Participate in or recruit others to participate in Embolden Your Inner Mathematician
  2. Study and participate in discussions around Standards of Mathematical Practices, including reading and implementing ideas in Beyond Answers by Mike Flynn
  3. Refine and rework learning progressions for each grading period (and calibrate with “next door neighbor” grades) to deeply understand the essentials to learn, to improve actionable formative assessment techniques and strategies, and to know our learners as mathematicians.

Responsibilities of the Chairs:

  • To collaborate with the Director of Teaching and Learning to plan committee meetings, professional development, and team meetings
  • To work as a team to meet the above goals
  • To develop a plan for sharing, coaching, and teaching grade level members to further equip them with the tools to further gain confidence as a student of math.
  • To help teams facilitate and implement work in the instructional core: relationships between student, teacher, and mathematical content

Notes:

  • Find a common meeting time among chairs and DoT&L that is consistent before each meeting.  
  • Start the year – overarching goal (connects to the instructional core) and accomplish it by learning more math, scaling learning to our teams, and continuing mathematical practices through class and book chat.
  • Consider video of Embolden Your Inner Mathematician for missed sessions?
