[Session 1]

Presenters:  Jay Chow and Zack Miller

Title:  The Feedback Our Students Need

Description:  Feedback is critical for learning, but not all feedback is created equal. Consider evaluative feedback, in which a student is told whether they are right or wrong. This can be easiest to give but frustrating or unhelpful to receive. In this session, we’ll consider alternatives, especially ones that use technology (e.g., Desmos Activity Builder) to show instead of tell.


Presenters: Linda Venenciano, Eric Kobayashi, Cynthia Twibell, Kara Suzuka

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa: Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG)

Title:  Using the First 10 Minutes to Set the Pace

Description:  How do you start your math class? Join us for a look at math warm up tasks that are designed to help you make those precious first few minutes of class worthwhile and important learning opportunities for students.



Presenter:  Wendi-Ann Tominaga

Hawaiʻi Department of Education: Mathematics Teacher

Nānākuli High & Intermediate School

2013 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching State Finalist

Title:  Students working harder than the teacher! What a concept!

Description:Do you want your students to be self-directed learners? Do you want students to reflect on their own learning? Come hear what I have tried, my failures, and my successes (student choice, success criteria, units, presentations). Be prepared to come listen, share what you have tried, and reflect on your current practice to help our students become self directed learners. Please bring a computer/device you use in your lesson planning.




[Session 2]


Presenter: Janel Marr

Hawaiʻi Department of Education

Math/STEM Resource Teacher

Kailua Kalaheo Complex

Title:  Manipulative Mathematics

Description:  Manipulatives give students concrete models of abstract mathematical concepts. Students using manipulatives develop conceptual understanding of arithmetic and algebraic topics and procedures because they see how and why the mathematical procedures work. In this session teachers will learn how using visuals and manipulatives can enhance students' learning of mathematics. Teachers will participate in activities that use manipulatives.


Presenters:  Dr. Laurie James, Dr. Veny Liu

University of Hawai'i - West O'ahu

Title:  Simple Mathematical Magic for Middle School

Description:  Have you ever been fascinated by card tricks or illusions? Many math concepts, like patterns and algebra, can be used when exploring magic using a deck of cards. In this session, you will practice and learn the mathematical secrets to four simple card tricks. You will experience yourself becoming a magician and will be able to impress your middle school students, family, and friends. If you would like to practice the magic with your personal playing cards, feel free to bring your own deck.


Presenters: Fay Zenigami, Barbara Dougherty

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa: Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG)

Title:  Explorations to Get Your Students' Math-Mojo on!

Description:  Would you like to have your students engage more in mathematical tasks? Would you like to develop more robust understanding of concepts and skills? Would you like to include more problem-solving tasks in your lessons? Our session gives participants opportunities to explore classroom-ready and classroom-tested tasks that address these three questions while focusing on significant mathematical content. Join us to get your Math-Mojo on!
