Elementary Subcategory

      Elementary Math Pilot Meetings (enVisionmath 2.0)
Target group: Math Pilot teachers

Pilot teachers will engage in professional conversations regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the program, areas of needed supplementation, and the implementation models/strategies utilized.
      Multiplication: A Deeper Dive Grades 3-5
Target group: Elementary core classroom teachers only, please. The research grant requires core classroom teachers for evaluation purposes.

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.

NOTE: This class is part of a research partnership on professional development effectiveness in mathematics with the University of Northern Colorado (EAGER Grant).
