We ask our children to sort items and make many graphs together – but do we fully understand the mathematical reasons behind doing these activities? How do they connect to expectations in upper grades? This 3-hr workshop will increase participants’ understanding of the Big Ideas of Sets, Sorting and Data Analysis through hands-on adult learning activities. We’ll also watch videos to discuss evidence of children’s thinking and how their understanding of these Big Ideas develops over time. Teachers will leave with fun lesson ideas to try in their own classrooms. Pk-2 educators of all experience levels are welcome!
