ORIGO and edWeb team to provide free seminar for K-6 math educators
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 — ORIGO Education‘s President and Co-founder, James Burnett, is offering a live stream education seminar, Making the Most of Math Models, on edWeb.net, a popular web community for professional development and networking among PreK-12 and post-secondary educators. The edWebinar will focus on how to make the most of meaningful math models and demonstrate how visual and concrete models support coherent content progressions in mathematics across grade levels. Presenter James Burnett will provide an introduction to four visual models often used in K-6 grade education, lead a discussion about the benefits of using the array/area model for developing multiplication facts and show how the thinking can be extended through grade levels.
Sign up here for the May 10 Making the Most of Math Models seminar. Educators can earn CE certificates from edWeb for participating in live sessions, and can take CE quizzes to earn certificates for watching recordings.
