Geometric Thoughts?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learning at a geometric level is Experience-Dependent! So much about helping students develop their spatial reasoning and geometric thinking is based on giving students opportunities over time to notice things, to discuss observations, to make connections between their observations and their worlds beyond the classroom, and to practice math-talk! But, sometimes we get rushed, and sometimes our very own ‘normal-talk’ contradicts the very distinctions we want kids to make! So, let’s find a way to meaningfully spread geometry throughout the year and tighten our language to ensure we are part of our students’ success, rather than an unfortunate road block. Leave this session with activity ideas designed to geometrically engage and challenge students throughout the year, along with a few do’s and don’ts for our own daily vocabulary!
