Mathematics Mondays Webinar Series Fall 2018

Please join us for an exciting new Mathematics Mondays webinar series!

 

Growth Mindset in Mathematics: October 1, 2018, 3:00-4:00pm

“I’m not a math person” is a statement made entirely too often.  Learn how to use a Growth Mindset to work hard to grow our math understanding, attitude, and outlook.

 

Writing Quality Math IEP Goals: November 5, 2018, 3:00-4:00pm

What assessments can I give to get data for the PLP?  What types of math goals should I be writing for my students? What are the progression of math skills that my students need to be successful?  Join us as we answer these questions and more.

 

Universal Design for Learning in the Math Class: December 10, 2018, 2:30-3:30pm

“There is no formula or recipe that works for all learners in all times. There is no set of lesson plans or units that can engage the range of learning styles, approaches, and intelligences that are likely to gather in one classroom.” -William Ayres. Join us to learn what Universal Design for Learning is and how you can apply these strategies to increase student success in the Mathematics Classroom.

 

Logging in is Easy!

Number Knowledge Test

What is the Number Knowledge Test (NKT)?

The NKT is a free, individually administered number sense screener.  It takes approximately 10 minutes per student to administer.  This test can be used to identify if a student is on par with their same age peers in number sense. For more on the NKT, click here:  https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED521575.pdf

 

Goals of the Number Knowledge Test

1. To determine if a student is functioning at, above, or below age/grade level in number knowledge

2. To determine which number concepts the student has mastered, which she is struggling with, and which she still needs to learn

3. To assess a student’s progress over the instructional period or academic year

Math Intervention Quick Reference Chart 2017-18

I’ve created a Quick Reference Chart for Mathematics Interventions that can be used for RtI or ESE Students in Broward County Public Schools.  This is not an exhaustive list, but rather a quick reference of frequently used and supported Math Interventions for K-12.  If you need support choosing an appropriate program for your school, please contact me at [email protected]

Fall 2017 Math Intervention Professional Learning

A Math Intervention Inventory was sent out to all school both public and charter in Broward County via ESE Specialists and Math Coaches/Contacts in April 2017.  One hundred forty schools responded!  Based on your responses FDLRS Reach (Broward) is offering a variety of Mathematics Intervention Professional Development Opportunities to meet your needs.  Some opportunities are face-to-face, while others are provided via webinar, or online modules in Canvas.  We are working hard to provide quality PD without pulling teachers away from their students.
