Webinar Targets Math Practices and the Common Core
One challenge in implementing the common-core standards in math is helping students not only master key content but also become proficient in the eight standards for mathematical practice laid out in the document. We'll explore the practices in an Education Week webinar Thursday at 2 p.m. Eastern time.
What do the practices really mean? What do they look like in the classroom? What are some good resources to help educators dive in? To answer these and other questions, I'll be joined by two expert guests:
• Jason Zimba, one of the lead writers of the common-core math standards and a founding partner at Student Achievement Partners; and
• Marlene Lovanio, the supervisor of mathematics for the Bristol school district in Bristol, Conn.
