Multiplicative Reasoning in the Classroom: Ongoing Assessment and Instruction

Event date:
06-23-2015

Multiplicative Reasoning in the Classroom: Ongoing Assessment and Instruction 

Instructors:  Mary Abele-Austin and Karen Reinhardt
 
The ability to reason multiplicatively and recognize situations as multiplicative is the cornerstone concept for intermediate mathematics knowledge, and the foundation of middle school mathematics.
Audience:  Mathematics Teachers of Grades 3-6
 
This 3 graduate credit (St. Mike’s) course is a professional development opportunity for teachers based on the cognitive research currently available on misconceptions and developing understandings for students in multiplicative reasoning.  Teachers will become familiar with this research through the Ongoing Assessment Project (OGAP), which makes the research transparent and explicit, focuses on the systematic use of formative assessment in classrooms, and provides materials needed for implementation.
 
Text:  Fosnot, Catherine, Dolk, Marteen,  Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Multiplication & Division, 2001
 
Instructors:  Mary Abele-Austin works as a K-8 math coach providing embedded professional development for classroom teachers in the Waterbury/Duxbury School District. She is a trained facilitator for the On-Going Assessment Project (OGAP)in Fractions, Multiplicative Reasoning and Proportionality.
