Proportional Reasoning: Strategies that Make Sense

March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm CST Free

Registration Deadline: THU. 3/3/22

We have lots of ways of reasoning intuitively about ratio and proportion, but in school we tend to see only one method: cross-multiplication. While this strategy is effective, it doesn’t connect to the way most people reason proportionally. In this session we will explore our own intuition about how to reason proportionally and learn to generalize those ideas into a strategy that works even when the numbers get messy – and that makes sense!

Presented by Sarah Lonberg-Lew, Adult Numeracy Center at TERC. Sarah has worked in the field of adult numeracy for seven years, both as a classroom teacher and providing professional development for math and numeracy teachers. She is a consultant for the SABES (System for Adult Basic Education Support) Mathematics and Adult Numeracy Curriculum & Instruction PD Center at TERC, where she develops and facilitates trainings and workshops and assists programs with curriculum development. She is the treasurer for the Adult Numeracy Network (ANN).
