Teach21 Summer Workshop: All You Need to Know About Mathematics You Could Have Learned in Kindergarten

Date: Tuesday - June 15, 2021
Time: 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Location: Online/virtual
Teach21 is a professional development institute focused on 21st-century teaching and learning. Workshops are developed and taught by faculty and staff of The School at Columbia University, with focus on innovation, integration and technology in a wide array of content areas.
What is age-appropriate mathematics, anyway? How do we know what content to teach in “first grade” versus “fifth grade”? What are our students actually capable of, and when? This workshop will reimagine the traditional scope and sequence for the introduction of basic operations and demonstrate that even so-called complex procedures like multiplying and dividing fractions can be child’s play for kindergarteners. (No, really!) We will explore a model for computation accessible to any student who can count to 20, but robust enough to use for any calculation students may face. We will touch on the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve and explore ways we might use this theory of learning to help students more efficiently gain number fluency. Open to those suffering from mathaphobia, mathaphiles, and anyone in between!

Instructor: Jordan Blackman
Tuesday, June 15, 10-12 pm ET
Recommended for educators teaching Grades K-6
