- 1. HEMPFIELD AREA SCHOOL DISTRICTPARENT MATH NIGHT<br />March 2, 2010<br />
- 2. Math Curriculum Committee Update<br />K-12 Committee began work in January 2009<br />Worked with the Math Science Collaborative to study “best practices” <br />Participated in presentations on six programs<br />Evaluated each program and conducted phone interviews with teachers and administrators in school districts currently using the program<br />Selected Math Expressions as the top choice.<br />Two teachers per grade level are piloting Math Expressions during the second semester<br />Teachers will use FASTT Math & Soar to Success software to supplement the Math Expressions program<br />
- 3. Math Expressions Program<br />A comprehensive standard-based K-5 mathematics curriculum that offers new ways to teach and learn mathematics. <br />It combines the powerful elements of the National Science Foundation (NSF) reform mathematics, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) with the best of traditional approaches. <br />It uses objects, drawings, conceptual language and real world situations to help students build mathematical ideas that math sense to them. <br />
- 4. CORE CLASSROOM STRUCTURES<br />Math Talk<br />Students explain thinking using drawings, develop math language<br />“Solve, Explain, Question, & Justify”<br />Quick Practice<br />Whole class daily routines & building of prerequisite skills<br />Accessible Algorithms<br />Computational procedures that are meaningful to all learners<br />Student Leaders<br />Students assume leadership roles, develop confidence<br />Building Concepts<br />Real world concepts, link drawings to written math notation <br />Helping Community<br />Everyone is a teacher and a learner<br />
- 5. Accessible Algorithms<br />An algorithm is a multi-step method for solving a math problem.<br />Students need to understand algorithms conceptually so that they can comprehend math.<br />Students learn to make math drawings that show quantities.<br />Having more than one algorithm allows students to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each one.<br />Less advanced students typically chose one method.<br />Other students may use and be able to explain more than one method while becoming fluent in at least one.<br />Understanding multiple algorithms builds number sense<br />
- 6. Components of the Program<br />Student Books (Hardback or Consumable)<br />Homework & Remembering Practice Books<br />Teacher’s Resource Book<br />Differentiated Instruction Cards<br />Varied Assessment<br />Manipulatives & Materials Kits<br />Student & Teacher Math Boards<br />Literature Libraries<br />Planning Guides & Pacing Guides<br />Tier I, II, III Interventions<br />Interactive White Board Technology<br />Online Parent Resources – eduplace.com <br />
- 7. Tips for Parents<br />A strong home school connection will facilitate the learning of all students<br />Math Letters describe concepts that are different and explain why the program uses these models<br />We ask each family to identify a “homework helper” to support the child’s learning from homework.<br />Ask your child about what he/she learned in school<br />Have your child talk about math using math terminology<br />Ask questions to prompt your child, rather than just telling the answers<br />Practice math facts for 5 to 10 minutes each evening<br />Have children apply math in real life situations:<br />Count change, count silverware, measure ingredients, calculate travel distances<br />
- 8. Online Resources<br />Go to www.eduplace.com for additional resources<br />Click on Pennsylvania<br />Click on Math Expressions<br />Select Grade Level<br />Select either Family or Kids Place<br />You will find the following resources:<br />eGlossary<br />Unit Overview<br />Family Letters<br />Math Background<br />eManipultives<br />eGames<br />
