Building Understanding of Algebra in the Middle and High School – July 16
Target audience: Middle and High School teachers
Building Understanding of Fractions for Young Mathematicians – July 17
Target audience: Elem. and Middle School teachers
During these interactive workshops, participants will develop a
deeper understanding of the mathematical content so that students can
learn and enjoy learning mathematics. Teachers will learn
strategies and participate in activities to develop understanding,
flexibility and adaptability in their students’ mathematical skills.
Strategies to reinforce and strengthen students’ vocabulary will be
shared. In addition a variety of alternative homework strategies will
be shared to engage students and keep them interested in learning.
Both workshops will be facilitated by Lenny VerMaas. Lenny has
twenty-eight years of classroom teaching experience at the middle and
secondary level. For the last ten years, he has been a professional
development consultant with ESU #6 in Milford. In addition to
mathematics content, he has trained teachers in a wide range of
instructional strategies, brain compatible learning, effective use of
homework, vocabulary acquisition, and student engagement. Lenny has
worked on the development of the Nebraska Mathematics Standards as well
as the NeSA-M, Nebraska Sate Assessment of Mathematics.
