Participants in this workout consider the conceptual understanding behind the traditional algorithm for long division and then recognize the importance of building students’ conceptual understanding beyond this example of long division and into every area of math.
Participants in this workout have the opportunity to experience a task as a student (making origami shapes!), and to reflect on how to use this task with learners to develop a classroom culture (virtual or otherwise) that embeds the math practices.
Participants in this workout examine why only teaching the process of “cross-multiplying and dividing” without developing conceptual understanding of this process is detrimental to student learning and will understand the importance of teaching conceptual understanding for commonly used algorithms.
