TARGET AUDIENCE: GR 7-12 EDUCATORS, COACHES, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION, AND NUMERACY LEADS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
Let x be the number of classes in a semester, y be the complexity of the classroom, and z be your sanity. How does one maximize z while addressing the constant increase of y and the limited number of x? Dave Martin will share his success story of how he challenged many traditional practices of teaching high school math which resulted in more students with deeper understanding of essential concepts. Rooted in research, come and learn how to implement highly effective teaching strategies while at the same time addressing "re dos, rewrites, and retests". Through authentic experiences, you will be provided with some new ideas to take back to your context. You will also learn ways to start your own journey towards an "Outcome Based" classroom which can truly challenge the comforted and comfort the challenged.
Dave Martinhas a Master of Mathematics, a Bachelor's degree in Education, and most importantly a Love for Learning. Throughout his career, he has challenged many traditional educational practices such as homework, tests, and even grading. Currently as a Division Math/Science Lead Teacher, Dave has the opportunity to learn with teachers, and students, from Pre K - Grade 12. You will find Dave tinkering with code, playing with mathematics, or counting by prime numbers.
