Why is it that so many of our students don't get math? Why, despite all our efforts, does students' progress in mathematics lag way behind our expectations? Wendy Ward Hoffer argues that all learners are capable of deep understanding, but first we must create classrooms where teachers serve as coaches, students engage as a community of learners, and everybody works toward "getting it" together. Minds-on Mathematicsshows you how. Wendy describes a "minds-on" math workshop that packs a powerhouse of benefits, helping you:set the stage for students' deep mathematical thinking and understandingbuild up students' 21stcentury skills and strategies provide an ideal forum for teaching the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practicedevelop self-confidence and mathematical competence in everylearner.Wendy explains the core elements of math workshop and then provides detailed strategies for implementing the workshop structure. Effective routines and abundant examples are provided for each component of the workshop, including:planning Openers that "hook" learners with engaging tasksusing Minilessons to model thinking and problem solvingmanaging Work Time for both group and independent learningcreating classroom routines that support Conferringensuring deep understanding with Sharing and Reflecting opportunities.Minds-on Mathematicsshows how to make the workshop model come to life in your math classroom, and proves that when we provide math learning experiences that support students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, to stretch and think in new ways, and then invite them to communicate their ideas to others, we inspire them to "get" math like never before.
