We're All Mathematicians! Strategies for Building the 5 Strands of Mathematical Proficiency

Why do so many children feel that they are not good at mathematics? Why do they give up so easily or quit before trying? Join this interactive session as we examine specific strategies for helping elementary students feel and act like mathematicians.  We will use the 5 strands of mathematical proficiency (Adding It Up!) as a framework and the 8 Mathematical Practices (CCSSM) and the Mathematical Teaching Practices to engage in doing mathematics. Particular attention will be given to the use of oral and written language in learning and doing mathematics.
