     Elementary Subcategory

          Bullet Black Rock Elementary - Kindergarten enVisionmath 2.0
Target group:BREL Kindergarten teachers

Teachers will discuss the new enVisionmath curriculum, troubleshoot, share ideas and plan together.
          Bullet Developing Number Sense and Computational Fluency in Grades K-5 [A]
Target group: Elementary math teachers. MS math teachers are welcome to attend.The focus of this class is to build a strong sense of number in order to facilitate efficiency around computational fluency. We will explore conceptual understanding behind computational algorithms for whole number operations and fractions to develop student number sense in grades K-5. Participants will engage in professional discussions on relevant research on developing student number sense and operational fluency and explore a variety of mathematical tasks and routines to develop these concepts in the classroom, focusing on efficiency, flexibility, and accuracy. This class is designed to increase mathematical knowledge and efficacy by doing mathematics and providing instructional strategies for the classroom in a collaborative setting.
          Bullet enVisionmath2.0 Collaboration Grades 3-5
Target group: Elementary math teachers, grades 3-5 only

This class is a Professional Learning Community space for Grades 3-5 teachers to collaborate with colleagues from around the District to share ideas, strategies, and structures to support the effective implementation of enVisionmath2.0. This class is your enVisionmath2.0 support network and life line to ensure you and your students are successful with this dynamic math program.
          Bullet enVisionmath2.0 Collaboration Grades K-2
Target group: Elementary math teaches grades K-2 only

This class is a Professional Learning Community space for Grades K-2 teachers to collaborate with colleagues from around the District to share ideas, strategies, and structures to support the effective implementation of enVisionmath2.0. This class is your enVisionmath2.0 support network and life line to ensure you and your students are successful with this dynamic math program.
          Bullet Multiplication: A Deeper Dive Grades 3-5 [A]
Target group: Elementary teachers grades 2-5

Learning how to multiply whole numbers is a major topic in elementary school. Many curricula focus on the standard algorithm for multiplying numbers; however, many students struggle with a standard algorithm. The area model of multiplication provides a different algorithm for multiplying whole numbers that the Colorado Academic Standards recognizes.

This algorithm can be developed conceptually by making connections between building rectangles with base-10 blocks to find the area of a rectangle and properties of multiplication. Although this development takes time, it supports students to build conceptual understanding of multiplication that can be used to multiply decimals and fractions and eventually polynomials. This experience provides teachers the opportunity to develop this conceptually understanding for themselves with activities that can be easily adapted for use with students.
     PST Subcategory

          Bullet Frederick Feeder Pre-Algebra PST
Target group: FMS & FHS math teachers

This group will look at practices to support student learning while providing resources for all high impact student groups. They will identify key targets, instuctional and assessment interventions, monitor pre / post assessments and test interventions for increasing student achievement.
          Bullet Mountain View Elementary enVisionmath2.0
Target group:MVEL teachers

This group will meet once per month for an hour as a collaborative group. During this meeting time, 20 minutes at the beginning will be spent sharing and problem-solving in response to current needs, time for questions, and time for the introduction of curricular components that might be helpful. Throughout the year guidance will be provided on:

  • creating a digital platform for lesson structure
  • integrating other apps
  • effective use of diagnostic kit
  • centers implementation
  • student led digital resources (assignment, tests, games)
  • intervention strategies.
          Bullet Skyline High School - Algebra Co-Teaching Support Team [A]
Target group: Algebra 1 co-teaching team

This group will continue to develop curriculum, create and discuss assessments, create PBL units and incorporate Blended Learning into classrooms.
     Training Subcategory

          Bullet Developing Algebraic Thinking in Grades K-8 [A]
Target Group: K-8 mathematics teachers and substitutes - high school teachers may also participate.

When most people hear the phrase “algebraic thinking” they think of solving equations for “x” and other procedures associated with traditional high school algebra. This class explores a broader sense of algebraic thinking and how patterns are a foundational component of mathematics and the understanding of mathematics. Participants will explore linear, quadratic, and exponential patterns in a variety of settings, including those with numbers, manipulatives, and written descriptions of growth. The class is focused around algebraic “Habits of Mind", and incorporates tasks from a variety of resources to explore the multiple representations of mathematical functions.

This class is designed to increase mathematical knowledge and efficacy among participants and provide instructional strategies for the classroom in a collaborative setting. Participants will spend most of the two class sessions engaged in mathematical tasks or guided exercises to achieve the class content goals.

Addresses Colorado Teacher Quality Standards: 1C, 1D
