|Marti-Jo Shaw and Karen Jagolinzer|
The intent of this session was to set the stage for the year with inspirational math activities. Karen and Marti-Jo placed emphasis on deep thinking, the value of mistakes, the beauty of mathematics, and the belief that everyone is capable of high level mathematics. They modeled some of the activities from IMath with the participants, and shared the specifics of what these activities have added to their classroom instruction.
Check in with Karen and Marti-Jo for more information on the exciting work they're doing with our 5th grade students!
