Instructional Routines in Math Education

December 2019

In this webinar, we share examples of instructional routines that can help students access mathematical ideas, whether in the classroom or engaged in distance learning. Learn how these routines can:

  • Create on-ramps to participation for all students
  • Focus students on learning mathematics and not on “what am I supposed to be doing right now?”
  • Develop students’ mathematical habits of mind

Inspiring Students to See Mathematicians as Role Models
