Description:

As Mathematicians, we know that infinity goes on forever but can our students explain what that means?  Today’s students need to be able to understand and explain those big-picture concepts.  But, they also need to be able to solve basic algebra problems.  This session will explore resources to help teachers engage diverse learners and help all students succeed in learning math concepts and strategies and be able to express their mathematical knowledge. 

 

This session will provide an overview of Math apps/extensions for multiple platforms.  A rubric will be provided for the evaluation of apps/extensions.  The participants will also be provided with a UDL planning template to use in designing their classroom lessons. 

 

Objectives:

1.     Participants will be able to describe key features of at least two math apps/extensions

2.     Participants will be provided with a list of math resources including apps/extensions/software available for multiple platforms as well as low tech tools.

 

3.     Participants will be able to incorporate at least 2 math apps/extensions into a written lesson plan that includes UDL principles
