Math Camp: Empowering Struggling Students in the Math Support Classroom FULL

What practices will lead students to overcome their gaps in math learning and years of negative math class experiences? And can we be so audacious as to expect them to develop a strong sense of self-efficacy and (gasp!) even joy for mathematics?

This session shares a novel approach to traditional remediation for math students. By incorporating three critical components in the math support class (development of procedural fluencies, support for conceptual understanding, and immersion into rich problem solving tasks) students can discover their inner mathematician!

We will investigate best practices for developing students’ procedural fluencies, as well as their conceptual understandings. These practices include effective strategies for building fact fluency, incorporation of a “Peek at the Week,” and effective use of online platforms for individualized instruction. We will also engage with accessible, rigorous math tasks that promote student moves aligned with the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
