Session Room: 
211
Presenter Name: 
Nicholas Restivo
Presenter Title: 
Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary & Middle Schools

Participants will transform greeting cards into boxes while discovering real-life geometry problems and the concepts that help to solve them. We will make predictions and conjectures, and uncover and clarify properties related to parallelograms, rectangles, squares, and other quadrilaterals. Ratio, proportion, area, and volume will be visited and we’ll take a crack at some non-traditional problems to bring back to the classroom. Okay for grades 3 - 5 also.

Session Room: 
217A
Presenter Name: 
Andy Clark
Presenter Title: 
Portland Public Schools (ret.)

This session will focus on visual models used in the highly successful Singapore curriculum that enables students to tackle complex problems and develop deep understanding of topics such as ratio, operations with fractions, and algebraic manipulation. This workshop will focus on how visual models are used to develop quantitative reasoning and generalizations in algebra. These models help all students make the difficult transition from arithmetic to algebra.
