Strategies to Promote Mathematical Reasoning

Instructor: Paul Riccomini, PhD
Dates: Monday-Tuesday, July 18 & 19
Time: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Fee: $450

It is essential for students to acquire a deep understanding  of foundational mathematical concepts and skills, and yet, many students struggle with mathematical reasoning. This is an especially difficult area for students with disabilities. In this workshop, Paul Riccomini, PhD, associate professor of education at the Pennsylvania State University, will explain three specific techniques for the:
• scaffolding of mathematical reasoning and thinking through explicit language prompts
• progression of content and skill focusing on the underlying structures of word problems
• utilization of activities for students to analyze solutions to problems

The strategies in this workshop support students in grades 4 to 12 in general education and special education settings and benefit math supervisors and administrators in implementing curriculum and pedagogy.
