Join us while we investigate the book The Problem with Math is English. This book illustrates how students often understand fundamental mathematical concepts at a superficial level. It offers a new way to approach teaching math content in a way that will improve how all students, and especially English language learners, understand math. We will investigate the conceptual understanding in mathematics including simple yet deep definitions of key terms, connections among key topics, and insightful interpretation.

This book study will consist of four Zoom meetings on 1/19, 2/16, 3/16 and 4/27 from 3:00-4:00 in addition to 12 asynchronous learning hours using Google Docs to answer questions based on the readings.

Participants who register before December 21 will receive a copy of the book.

Facilitator: Jennifer Risko School Improvement Social Studies Specialist

Dates: 1/19/23, 2/16/23, 3/16/23, 4/27/23
Time: 3pm – 4pm
