Helping Children Master Algorithms

Manitoba Math Workshop, August 27 2013
Because the second presenter emailed me to express concern regarding live tweeting their portion of the workshop, I have removed all reference to this individual’s portion of the day.

  1. Here for the “Teaching the Standard Algorithms in Math” workshop. Tweets from this workshop will have #mbmath hash… 4sq.com/17bposq
  2. Workshop participants asked to think of what we value in our math students. #mbmath
  3. Great video to encourage flexible thinking! youtube.com/embed/TAIHeGHi… #mbmath
  4. Today’s #mbmath workshop slides are available on maple4teachers.ca
  5. 7×8 one of the most difficult math facts to remember for some students. #mbmath twitter.com/tjthiessen/stat…
  6. C. Bilyk walking participants thru using base10 array model of multiplication to algebra tiles array model of algebraic multiplic’n. #mbmath
  7. Multiplication array, extended algorithm, condensed algorithm. #mbmath twitter.com/tjthiessen/stat…
  8. C. Bilyk’s portion of the morning is practical, valuable, applicable. Awesome! #mbmath
  9. Bilyk highlighting how definition of “best” “efficient” way to do math problem is an individual, personal thing. Love! #mbmath
  10. One more pic fr morning. Great way to encourage decimal thinking, estimation skills without using calculator. #mbmath twitter.com/tjthiessen/stat…
  11. Keeps me entertained! “@sorokowskij: thanks for live tweeting these events. Lots of food for thought” #mbmath
  12. I just hilited @ddmeyer “3 act math tasks” to #mbmath group. Great to avoid wordiness of word problems, encourage deep thinking.
