  1. Visual models that build conceptual understanding including ten frames, number lines, area models, and tape diagrams.
  2. Formative assessment and questioning techniques that lead to more effective and differentiated instruction.
  3. Computational strategies and algorithms that are the key to both fact and procedural fluency.
  4. Problem-solving techniques that help students make sense of problems and generalize solutions.
  5. Content and practice standards that are the key to effective instruction, assessment and remediation at each grade level.
  6. Activities and math centers that provide the extensive repetition and practice students need to become proficient in math.

Bonus Session: Have recent breakthroughs in technology made you a better, more effective teacher? Top-rated speaker and popular technology expert Tammy Worcester Tang can help you transform your classroom by applying new technologies in clever ways. This is one workshop you won’t want to miss!
