Number Lines 101: The Fundamentals

Elizabeth Peyser

November 12,  8–9 a.m. ET
Session Number: On Demand: 4

Number lines are a lovely sense-making tool, from early elementary to secondary mathematics domains. Simple? Often the building and understanding are a bit elusive by students and educators! Join us for hands-on learning to construct this important tool—from whole numbers to fraction computation to double number lines in middle school and more!

Engaging Students in Mathematical Thinking and Discourse during Remote and Hybrid Learning

Danielle Curran

November 13, 7–8 p.m. ET
Session Number: 137

In this session, we will share strategies for engaging students in mathematical thinking and discourse while teaching remotely or six feet apart. We will discuss strategies that can be used to engage students in discussing mathematics and allow teachers to get in-the-moment feedback from students. Teachers will leave with resources to help them manage online learning and strategies to use in remote-learning settings.
