Webinar: Why We Should Reconsider Using Word Problems (And What We Should Be Doing Instead)

05/04/2020 - 2:00pm

Grade levels: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Content areas: Math, Professional Development

District/Organization: edWeb

How do we give students the authentic mathematics experiences they need to navigate the modern world? For example, a pre-published word problem on the spread of a pandemic doesn’t really mirror real life. Factors that really matter, like social distancing or a population’s age, won’t be included. Join this edWebinar as Robert Kaplinsky, well-known mathematics educator, author, and speaker, discusses how to teach students to build skills they can use to deal with the complexities ahead.

This edWebinar will be of benefit to middle and high school teachers, school and district leaders, math curriculum directors, coaches, and department chairs. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
