Workshops and Events Schedule

The CRR supports educators in their quest to provide quality instruction to elementary, middle, and high school mathematics students. The Center's intent is to provide experiences to deepen mathematical understandings and to supply lessons that could be implemented in K-12 classrooms. Workshops and Events are listed below. Further program and workshop details are listed on IMPACTS and HEMS program tabs above.

We are regularly revising our workshop topics and schedule. If you have topics you would like to see featured in these workshops, please let us know.

For the 2022-2023 school year, CRR events are FREE for ALL Arizona teachers!


Upcoming Workshops and Events (All hybrid)

Snapshot of upcoming CRR Events: August 2022 (Google Slide)

August 2022

Students need to understand the meaning of multiplication beyond repeated addition & the meaning of division beyond repeated addition and repeated subtraction. They also need multiple strategies to multiply and divide that will help them make sense of what they are doing. Come and learn multiple conceptual strategies for multiplication and division that will foster greater student success and a deeper meaning for multiplication and division leading to fluency.

Presenters: Beatriz Santa Cruz, Dwight Valencia, Melissa Hosten
Date: Saturday, August 13th, 2022
Time: 8:30am-12:30pm
Location: In-person at UArizona Tucson campus. Remote via Zoom.
Earn: 4 hours of professional development credit for re-certification.

REGISTRATION

Decimals are introduced as fractions in fourth grade and as magnitudes of place value in fifth grade. How do we make strong connections between these ideas and domains? How do we help students develop a robust understanding of decimals? And how do we help students learn conceptual strategies for operations with decimals? Come and explore these ideas. This is a two-part workshop. Therefore, priority will be given to participants that register for BOTH sessions.

Addition and subtraction are the foundation of elementary mathematics. These operations intentionally and systematically grow from work in Kindergarten through grade 3, culminating in fluency with addition and subtraction in grade 4. How do we help students move along the path? What strategies will build the concept clearly and understandably? Come and explore the conceptual path and strategies to move students to deeper understanding of addition and subtraction.

Presenters: Ryann Cagle, Nancy Casagrande, Jennifer Dwosh

Fractions and fraction operations are the foundations for middle school mathematics. They are essential for proportional reasoning, algebra, and probability, yet they are incredibly difficult to learn and teach. In middle schools, it is important to understand students’ previous experiences with fractions in order to develop their algebraic reasoning. Fractions operations intentionally and systematically grow from work in 3rd grade, culminating in fluency with operations with rational numbers in 7th grade. How do we help students move along this path? What strategies will build the concepts clearly and understandably? How do we develop and integrate fluency while also addressing other middle school math topics? Come and explore the developmental path and strategies to move students to deeper understanding of fractions and fraction operations in grades 5-8. 

(Activities will be different from last year's Fractions workshop, so teachers who attended last year should still consider attending this year's workshop.)

NOTE: This is a TWO PART workshop. Participants will be expected to take a task back to their classrooms, collect and analyze student work, and share their reflections with the group.

**Please only register if you can attend BOTH sessions!

Description: Have you been striving to increase student engagement for all students? Would you like your students to do more thinking and less mimicking? Do you want your students to become lifelong problem solvers? In this seminar we will collaboratively experience how to get even the most reluctant learners to successfully participate in your High School mathematics classroom. We will use Peter Lilijedhal’s set of practices in Building Thinking Classrooms to transform our classrooms. These easy to follow steps will create an environment that is focused on collaboration and student-centered learning where thinking is the norm and student learning is the goal.

Presenter: Kristi Peterson is in her 29th year in secondary math education. The first 9 years of her career she taught in the small rural community of Kearny, AZ and then transferred to Gilbert Public Schools. She has taught all courses from Algebra 1 to Calculus. For the last 6 years she has been the Secondary Mathematics Coordinator where she supported math curriculum, instruction and assessment for all 7-12 math classrooms in the district.  Her passion for helping students succeed through student centered math instruction has led her back to the classroom.  This year she will return to teaching at Mesquite High School where she looks forward to implementing the many strategies she has learned over the years.

This is a two-part series focused on High School Mathematics that earn participants professional development certificates for 9 hours.  

$50 stipends will only be provided to the first 25 teachers from Arizona schools who participate in both sessions due to the generosity of Lee and Arthur Herbst.

Please only register if you can attend both sessions.

In this session we will present two data collection activities, that you can do with your students, and that result in writing an equation of a line from the data collected. We will then discuss what information the equation tells us, including what the slope of the line tells us. (It’s not just “Rise over Run”!) Bring a graphing calculator, or another graphing utility, but graphing calculator experience is not necessary for this workshop.

Description: Can we really expect students to compare any set of fractions without the “butterfly trick”? Absolutely! It’s critical that students develop a conceptual understanding of the magnitude of fractions to lay the foundation for operations with fractions as well as proportional reasoning and algebra. Come and participate in a variety of hands-on tasks that will help your students develop strategies for comparing fractions
