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.
