Fostering Geometric Thinking that Deepens Student Learning

For grades 6-8
July 19-21, Richmond
Learn how to integrate research-based instructional strategies, aligned to support KAS for mathematics, to foster deeper geometric thinking in middle school students.
PIMSER Regional Teacher Partner, Jamie-Marie Miller, will share teacher and student strategies that made the greatest difference with numerous groups of her KY students. You will leave this series with: 

  • a variety of research-based instructional strategies that will foster deeper geometric thinking.
  • deepened understanding of the vertical progression of the KAS Geometry standards from elementary to middle school, which can help to bridge learning gaps necessary for success in high school mathematics.
  • numerous literacy based instructional strategies that will help in vocabulary acquisition necessary to communicate mathematically.
Audience: classroom teachers, math coaches, special education math teachers, and other math educators grades 6-8 who support highly effective math teaching.

18 hours of PD credit
