UCSB Department of Mathematics Summer 2009

Summary: UCSB Department of Mathematics
Summer 2009
Contexts For Learning Mathematics Workshops
Number Sense and Computational Fluency in K-6:
June 8 - 12, 8:30-3:30 Antioch University, Room 203
Workshop leaders: Bill Jacob (UCSB) and
Marianne Caston (Antioch University)
This workshop will examine research-based strategies for developing computational fluency in
grades K-6. Participants will receive the instructional units necessary to develop the strategies
as well as the mini-lessons and tools to incorporate them throughout the year as part of the new
math adoption. Because it is essential that these strategies be used coherently across grade
levels, the workshop will devote two days to learning how the strategies play across grade
levels. Then participants will then work in teams at their grade levels. Teachers in the Harding-
Cesar Chavez summer school will be among the participants.
Participating teachers will receive a $500 stipend
The units studied in the is workshop are:
Organizing and Collecting: Early numeracy and place value
The Double Decker Bus: Addition and subtraction facts using the arithmetic rack
Measuring For the Art Show: Addition, subtraction, and measurement strategies and
development of the open number line
