What is it about math that is different than other subjects? It’s often rote-memory heavy, rule- or procedure-based, and only some people are good at it.

What if we could teach differently than you were taught, and all students could do more real math than fake math? Join math instruction expert and published author, Pam Harris, for an engaging session where you will discover:

  • How to reach all of your students
  • What it means to engage in the work of a mathematician
  • The difference between solving a problem with relationships and solving using rote-memorized steps
  • How to develop mathematical reasoning in all grade bands
