SESSION DESCRIPTIONS:

Presenter:  Lizabeth Horii

Grades:  K-5

Title:  Math + Reading = ?

Description:  Do your students struggle with solving word problems?  Maybe it’s not the math.  Explore how to make Math time Reading time, too!

————————————————————-

Presenter: Ann Nakasato

Grade Level:  5th grade

Title: Chemical Reaction Vehicles: A STEM project that focuses on the Structure and Properties of Matter, Fractions and Measurement

 Description:  This session explores how educators can integrate math and science in their 5th grade classroom.  Begin with a science phenomena that explores an idea of how to get your students to apply their knowledge of adding fractions.  Then, learn how to design learning stations to promote observation and exploration as students discover and learn about the physical and chemical properties of matter.  At the end, dive into an engineering design challenge that has students use their knowledge of science to help design and build a vehicle that is powered solely by a chemical reaction.

Presenters:  Stacy George & Karen Umeda

Grade Level:  3rd and 5th Grade 

Title:  I Believe I Can Fly

Description:  Did you know that mathematics is the language of science?  Learn about the four forces of flight and how mathematics can be integrated with this learning.  Come fly with us and have some fun!

——————————————————————

Presenter:  Akeyo Garcia

Grade Levels:  Grades PreK-2

Title:  Math Games From Around the World for Young Learners

Description:  We all learn by doing!  Come and play ‘no prep’ indoor/outdoor math games from 6 countries that your students can play while their develop different strategies for solving problems.  You will be able to provide many opportunities for your students to practice and learn fundamental number concepts and deepen their mathematical understanding while having fun.

Presenters: Laurie James & Veny Liu

Grade Levels:  Grades K-5

Title:  Fundamental Concept in Mathematics:  Computing the Winning Strategy for NIM

Description:  Some games are all about luck.  Your winning chance depends on the rolling of a die, shuffling of cards, or the spinning of a wheel.  The purpose of this session is to model how to develop winning strategies to determine which player will win the ancient game of NIM.  The concept of NIM sum is a very effective tool not only in game theory but also in other areas of mathematics.  Through hands-on learning, we will present multiple variations of the NIM game for Grades K-12.  At the end of the session, participants will leave with several examples of the NIM game.  Let us show you how easy it is to teach your students and implement NIM into your classroom.

Presenter:  Julie Lum

Grade levels:  Grades K-5

Title:  TDC is easy as 1 - 2 - 3!  Establishing a Routine for Math Discourse

Description:  Routines...Routines...Routines...Make mathematical discourse a predictable expectation in your classroom by establishing a routine. Come and experience a routine in math discourse. Learn how to enhance math talk with strategies to engage all learners.
