This year we will have a series of podcasts with Cathy Fosnot hosted by Stephen Hurley. Each session will be four weeks in length beginning with the Fall session on the following dates:
- October 11
- October 18
- October 25
- November 1
The live broadcast will be 8:00 pm on each date. Archived podcasts will be available shortly afterwards so you may access them anytime from https://voiced.ca. Each podcast will focus on as Cathy Fosnot’s New Perspectives on Learning. Have a look at this video on this page to have a sense of the learning we will be doing.
In the fall sessions Cathy will mentor educators in deepening their understanding of the landscape for multiplication and division and help teachers to consider how to plan math instruction that supports mental math and problem solving. Educators are invited to choose one of the three selected units of study to guide their learning. These units help to build capacity in an understanding of how models, strategies and big ideas are embedded in the kits.
- Groceries, Stamps, and Measuring Sticks – Grade 2/3 – transition from addition to multiplication
- The Big Dinner – Grade 4 – emergence of use of a ratio table
- Muffles Truffles’ – Grade 4 – emergence of use of an open array
Each podcast session will be supported with dialogue on Twitter followed by reflective blogging. Join us for the chat by using the hashtag: #themathpod.
