NCTM is now offering expanded topics in its popular EWorkshop series. But don't pack your bags, because we're bringing the workshops to you! Gather your colleagues at your school for the workshop to share ideas among yourselves while sharing with fellow teachers around the globe. For only $95 per computer hook up, one site license will allow your group to get together in one room and join in via computer and speakerphone with other groups of teachers like you. These EWorkshops provide an interactive overview of gradeband specific expectations as defined in NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. Using selected activities from NCTM’s Navigations series and NCTM’s journals, the EWorkshops will provide insights into ways of using these materials in the classroom. Registration fee of $95.00 includes one computer sign in for your entire group. This allows the group to gather in one room and discuss the ideas and how they can be implemented across the board, not just in one teacher's classroom. Available winter/spring 2008 EWorkshops (see below for full descriptions):

Once processed, registration fees for the EWorkshop are nonrefundable. If you have questions, email elearning@nctm.org. EWorkshop Descriptions: Reasoning with Data and Probability This is the 200708 Professional Development Focus of the Year. Explore ideas of mathematical reasoning with data and probability as defined in NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. These pairs of 90minute EWorkshops will offer investigations of concepts within the data analysis and probability standard and provide activities for classroom implementation. Where appropriate, EWorkshops include references to Curriculum Focal Points and highlight instructional strategies that will foster student understanding of the Data Focal Point. Methods of data collection, statistical analysis, evaluation, and understanding and application of probability will be explored using several instructional approaches, including utilization of virtual manipulatives. Implementing the Algebra Standard Gain an interactive overview of the algebra expectations as defined in NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. These pairs of 90minute Eworkshops will offer approaches and techniques for integrating algebraic concepts in the classroom and provide activities for classroom implementation. Where appropriate, EWorkshops include references to Curriculum Focal Points and highlight instructional strategies that will foster student understanding of the Algebra Focal Point. Patterns, representations, modeling, and analysis of change will be explored using a variety of formats, including utilization of virtual manipulatives. Geometric Thinking Gain an interactive overview of the geometry expectations as defined in NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. These pairs of 90minute EWorkshops will offer approaches and techniques for integrating geometric concepts in the classroom and provide activities for classroom implementation. Where appropriate, EWorkshops include references to Curriculum Focal Points and highlight instructional strategies that will foster student understanding of the Geometry Focal Point. The activities included will promote student understanding of shapes, spatial relationships, transformations, and visualization, using resources that will enable connections among geometric properties and theorems.Posted December 13, 2007
