About This Workshop

If you find yourself trying to explain all the math concepts students need to know, yet your students are lacking understanding and ownership of what you’re teaching them, this mini workshop is for you.  You'll learn strategies to change up your lessons so students take more ownership of their learning and you don’t have to tell them everything.

We will start by discussing how it is possible to teach math without explaining every math concept to students. Then we will look at examples of teaching math without telling formulas, without using tricks, and without overwhelming students.  Lastly, we will explore productive questioning techniques and common issues you might experience as your students gain more ownership of their learning.
