Talk 30: Integers: Beyond the Rules

Heather Theijsmeijer & Richard Duffy

Show notes:

OAME 2021 Session Description: As young learners, children spend years developing sense of number as well as the ability to count efficiently, as a foundation for higher operations. However when we introduce students to integers, we often jump right into operations without laying that same solid foundation with students' sense of negative numbers. This results in students often confusing the "rules" for adding and subtracting integers throughout the intermediate grades, and without the ability to judge the reasonableness of their solutions. Join us as we restore the balance between using integer rules efficiently and being able to reason through problems using multiple representations, by looking at a new twist on time-honoured number sense activities. Appropriate for grade 6-10 teachers.

Talk 24: Destreaming Math: Equity, Practice, and Politics

Jason To

Show notes:

OAME 2021 Session Description: This session will highlight several concrete pedagogical practices for developing more equitable learning spaces in a new destreamed environment using Rochelle Gutierrez's four dimensions of equitable math education. As politics of power and privilege are inextricably connected to policy shifts that address equity, this session will also touch upon those dynamics as they relate to math programming and suggest possible responses. This session will be geared towards math leaders (department heads, school administrators, instructional coaches, etc.) who will play important roles to ensure that destreaming math addresses societal inequities as intended.
