Are your students ready for math at the next level? [6-12] ~ Scott Prescott, Director of Instruction, VLACS, sprescott3@vlacs.org
Come and explore two exciting new math options for students through VLACS: College Math Readiness and Developmental Math. Using a comprehensive pre-assessment, College Math Readiness creates an individualized learning path for each student to prepare the student for introductory math at the college(s) of their choice. A certified math instructor supports each student, tracks individual progress, and meets regularly with the each to coach them through material. Developmental Math is design for student in grades 6-12. For acceleration, remediation, or additional challenge, students select individual topics of study from arithmetic through trigonometry. Each topic begins with a pre-assessment so students only work on material they have not yet mastered. Each unit consists of videos, sample problems, practice problems, tutorials, puzzles and a final assessment. Come and discuss the variety of ways schools and students can use these tools.

Mission Possible: Changing Course for Math Fact Fluency! [4-8] ~ Kathleen Kaplan, Explore Learning, Kathleen.Kaplan@explorelearning.com
Many students have limited math fact fluency. If left unaddressed, this hinders progress with more advanced math topics. Traditional methods for developing fluency can be ineffective for most students. Students who can automatically recall math facts are more capable problem solvers, learn new math skills more quickly, and are more likely to succeed in future math courses. Finally – a successful classroom technique that is changing test scores, and attitudes, even has them asking for more!

Probability Carnival [4-5] ~ Rebekah Gonzalez, PE Teacher & Jasmyn Gray, Art Education Teacher, Laconia SD,rgonzalez@laconiaschools.org & jgray@laconiaschools.org
Join Rebekah and Jasmyn as they provide an overview of the steps necessary to create an integrated school wide project that targets school deficits based upon NECAP and NWEA scores. Last year they looked at statistics and probability to determine target areas, then they created subject specific lessons using these math skills in real life applications in Physical Education, Art, and Technology. As a culminating event students participated in a school wide Probability Carnival.

Learning Progression, Technology, & the CCSS [K-12] ~ Jerry Scacchitti, Renaissance Learning, jerry.scacchitti@renlearn.com
Explore how teaching and learning in the classroom can be improved to increase student achievement by integrating learning progressions and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with technology and research-based, highly motivating software. By using learning progressions and ability-appropriate standards in the CCSS strands, teachers observed an average of over 3 years of growth in their students during a 6-month period and an 8-point gain in the math NECAP score for the fall 2012 testing. Through the incorporated use of technology with learning progressions, teachers saw instant results to how data, technology, and the CCSS can be used to improve classroom instruction and student learning.

~ NHSTE Supports “Going Green” by Posting Digital Resources ~

¦ Our presenters are encouraged to “Go Green” and print a minimum number of handouts. Instead we encourage them to post their resources on the TT SIG #2 apr-10-14 wiki.

¦ The address for the workshop wiki is: http://nhste-ttsig2-apr-10-14.wikispaces.com

¦ If you have never used a wiki, do not fear, it is simple to access and easy to post. We have created this as a public wiki, so anyone with the address can go to the site, post comments, share resources, and access workshop information. You do not need to set up an account to access or post to this page.

¦ When you go to the wikispace, you will see a copy of this handout pasted on the page. There will be a space following each session description for the presenter to add links or upload files that you can download.

¦ If you want to add to the wiki, click on the Edit button in the top right-hand corner. Please proofread your comments for grammatical correctness and be professional in your postings. Remember to save when you are through!
