Rethinking How We Teach Ratios and Proportional Reasoning
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Building Concepts
Speakers: Michelle Rinehart, Angie Slicker
Is there more to the mathematical story for ratios and proportional reasoning?
As we implement new standards, how can we be sure that we are using effective models and examples to build a coherent understanding of these concepts in the middle grades?
Join us as we discuss how we changed our approach to teaching these topics by first deepening our own understanding of ratios and proportions. Learn how educators are using TI-Nspire™ technology and the free Building Concepts lessons to enhance visualization in support of learning.
This webinar will focus on:
- Classroom implementation experiences from a teacher using Building Concepts lessons
- Perspective gained while presenting Building Concepts professional development materials
- How to access Texas Instruments resources supporting middle grades mathematics teachers
