Focus on Student Thinking: Engage & Reflect
February 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm PST$20.00
Designed by the Math Project at Sacramento State for K-12 teachers of mathematics, these workshops (held via Zoom) are designed to not only deepen your understanding of mathematics, but also to help you reflect on what learning was like last year. With a focus on student thinking we will ask ourselves, “What is worth keeping?”
For our last FOSTER event of the school year we will be working on the “Uncut Spaghetti” problem. Pass through every square with one spaghetti noodle, making sure to always:
– Move to an adjacent square that is above, below, to the right or left of the square
– Choose the square with the smallest value, when there is a choice
– Only move through open squares that haven’t been passed through before
How does this translate to “What to keep?”
Let’s just say, it’s always good to have a plan, but when the noodles fall we need to get creative and stay flexible!
