Students can of course learn the meaning of mathematical ideas when teachers define them and share some examples. But with some tiny “tweaks” to this process students will not only remember these ideas better, they will come to understand them better, be able to flexibly and fluidly apply them, and most importantly, learn how to construct their own understanding of any mathematical idea. This is conceptual reasoning—a powerful way to empower students with the ability to think about math ideas,concepts and even formula and algorithms, that helps solve even the most challenging problems.Come learn about how easy it is to provide your students with this amazing gift of thinking through practical, curriculum specific examples. You will leave energized and enthusiastic!
