Elementary teachers engage in Math Learning Labs

Elementary Teachers

Elementary teachers are engaged in their second year of Math Learning Labs with Melinda Knapp from OSU-Cascades. The goal of the Math Learning Labs is to enable students to tackle difficult math problems with and without their peers. One of the concepts is to encourage students to talk to their peers about mathematics in meaningful ways. Students explain their thinking to others, think about how others are thinking, and provide justification for their thinking. This helps them to persevere in solving problems, resulting in a deeper understanding of math.
