Location: West Windsor’s Board Office, at 321 Village Road East, West Windsor

Presenter: Angelo DeMattia

How can math teachers be supported on their journey to provide quality learning for their students? This workshop will help participants explore various support structures that will help attain the above goal. If you are new to math leadership, this session will help clarify this enormous task and will help you gain confidence as to where to begin. If you are experienced, this session will help you rethink the educational approaches and your training. Ultimately, you will improve as a knowledgeable practitioner, capable of using your extensive math understanding and teaching experiences to help children from varied cultural backgrounds become convincing mathematicians.



Tuesday, August 1, 2017 Developing Mathematical Habits of the Mind – Thinking the Math Instead of Doing the Math w/Tom Beatini
For: Grades 6 – 12 Teachers, Pre-Service Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors
Location: Parsippany-Troy Hills School District, Parsippany, NJ
This workshop will provide you with resources that engage students in meaningful learning experiences to encourage students to think mathematically. Topics in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II will be addressed that shift the focus of teaching around rich tasks. Pedagogical strategies and techniques that help students develop and foster mathematical habits of the mind through problem solving, modeling, and making mathematical connections will be discussed. Classroom-ready hands-on materials that focus on the development of conceptual and procedural knowledge utilizing these methods and suggestions that facilitate hard-to-teach topics (such as composition of functions) will be shared. Don’t forget to bring a graphing calculator, as it will be used to demonstrate techniques of upside-down teaching!

Thursday, August 3, 2017 Formulating Formative Assessments and Creating Quality Questions for Summative Assessments w/ Lena Komitas & Dianna M. Sopala
For: Grades 6 – 12 Teachers, Math & Teacher Leaders, Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors, School & District Administrators
Location: Parsippany-Troy Hills School District, Parsippany, NJ
As teachers, we assess our students every day. This session will explore different formative assessment ideas. Some strategies will include the use of technology. The questions we incorporate into our formative and summative assessments are important. What kind of questions do we ask our students? Why do we ask these questions? Do we pose questions at the right time? We will discuss in this workshop various forms of questioning techniques, their purpose, and the cognitive level of questions (DOK and Bloom’s Taxonomy). Asking good questions can improve students’ engagement, provide us with information on what students know and do not know, and move them forward in their learning. The participants will have time to create various types of questions for given mathematical tasks/objectives that can be used for formative and/or summative assessments. How do teachers know that their assessments address the standards? Participants will use Student Achievement Partners’ Assessment Evaluation tool to evaluate
assessments and review Achieve the Core’s online assessment tools. All questions will be shared among the participants. Join us to start collaboratively planning your questions for the next school year!

Tuesday, August 8, 2017 Help! My Students Don’t Remember What They Learned Last Year (K-2): Filling in the Gaps in Students’ Learning w/Denise Rawding
For: Grades K – 2 Teachers, Pre-Service Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors, School & District Administrators
Location: Clifton High School Annex Clifton, NJ
Do you want to learn how to address gaps in students’ math understanding and skills while still moving forward with the curriculum? In this workshop, you will learn how to identify prerequisite skills that support the current grade level’s math work. You will also explore ways to support students in building necessary prior understandings and skills through math centers and scaffolded lessons. Please bring a laptop.

Tuesday, August 8, 2017 Tech in the Math Classroom Grades 7-12 w/ Dianna Sopala & Nicole Zayatz
For: Grades 7 – 12 Math Teachers & Teacher Leaders, Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors
Location: Clifton High School Annex, Clifton, NJ
How do you effectively use technology as an instruction tool and an assessment tool? Teachers will learn to use current apps to guide instruction and the learning process. Teachers will learn to use apps for assessments and use these data to help drive instruction. Please bring a charged laptop.

Wednesday, August 9, 2017 A Visual Approach to Algebra & the NJ Standards w/ Angelo DeMattia
For: Grades 7 – 9 Math Teachers & Teacher Leaders, Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors
Location: North Hunterdon High School, Annandale, NJ
Too few students can demonstrate a deep conceptual understanding of algebraic relationships. This workshop will assist teachers in developing a more visually based lesson format. More visually based lessons create opportunities for students – including SE & ELL – to effectively make transitions from concrete ideas/visual to abstract concepts. The emphasis will be on applying the PAW process: P is for Pictures, A is for Algebra, and W is for words. Ample hands-on lessons will highlight the process that helps students attain a higher level of achievement on the new PARCC assessments and help teachers experience a new connection to the Common Core Standards. Bring your laptop and graphing calculator.

Friday, August 11, 2017 Engaging Formative Assessment Techniques With Technology w/ Eric Milou
For: Grades 6 – 12 Teachers, Pre-Service Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors, School & District Administrators
Location: Clearview Regional School District, Mullica Hill, NJ
This session will have teachers engaging in several formative assessment tasks using free technology from Desmos to Nearpod. The tasks will demonstrate that we can engage students in their learning and assess their understanding in real time using such technology.

Thursday, August 17, 2017 Incorporating Desmos in Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus Classes w/ Kathleen Carter
For: Grades 9 – 12 Math & Teacher Leaders, Teachers/Educators, Specialists, Math Coaches, Supervisors
Location: North Hunterdon High School, Annandale, NJ
The use of the online Desmos calculator engages students in activities that incorporate the Common Core Mathematical Practices. In this session, Desmos activities will be shared that allow students to model using mathematics, explore transformations, and analyze functions and relations. Participants will be introduced to the Desmos Activity Builder Activities to learn to customize Desmos activities. The incorporation of Desmos will also allow students to make connections between graphs, data tables and equations. Bring a laptop or iPad.
