Building Educators' Understanding of Early Mathematics to Promote Students' Later Mathematics Success- WEBINAR

 

EVENT VIDEOS

This collection of resources is drawn from a series of in-person and web-based events for educators that the Santa Clara County Office of EducationSilicon Valley Education Foundation, and the Silicon Valley Research Alliance at REL West at WestEd hosted in fall 2015 to share strategies for teaching math to young children. Based on the IES Teaching Math to Young Children Practice Guide, nationally known educators and researchers Akihiko Takahashi and Douglas Frye focused on the foundational PreK- Grade 2 mathematics knowledge and skills necessary for students to achieve mastery of the Common Core State Standards and meet with success across grade levels. Use this collection of resources to learn about:

  • Practical, evidence-based recommendations for teaching math to children ages 3-5;
  • How these practices relate to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (including both the content standards and Standards for Mathematical Practice), especially for grades K-2;
  • How these mathematical foundations support the success of students in later elementary and middle school grades.

Resources include an archived webinar, videos of Dr. Akihiko Takahashi discussing instructional strategies aligned to CCSS-M standards, a worksheet with a hands-on activity to explore connections between early math instruction and students' later math success, and the IES Teaching Math to Young Children Practice Guide.

Dr. Takahashi and Dr. Frye's full presentations are available upon request. Please email relwestevents@wested.org

Speakers included:

Dr. Douglas Frye, Associate Professor, University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education


Dr. Akihiko Takahashi, Associate Professor, DePaul University
