From STEM to STEAM: The Arts and Creativity in Early Math

Friday, July 12
10:00 - 11:00
Session Room: 
Ballroom C 1
Presenter Name: 
Stuart Murphy

Young students need to be excited about math. They need to be fully engaged in creating math models, making up math stories, doodling and sketching, and using multiple means of expression to communicate about probability, data analysis, and other areas of mathematics. Let’s work together to get the arts—artistic expression and creative thinking—into our every day math instruction.

The Equation: A Balance, Not “The Right Answer”

Friday, July 12
8:30 - 9:30
Session Room: 
Ballroom C 2
Presenter Name: 
Marcy Cook
Presenter Title: 
Marcy Cook Math

Engage elementary students in meaningful activities balancing two sides of an equation. Provide opportunities for students to deal with equations as starting problems, stumper problems, and independent task time activities. Provide a solid foundation for future algebraic success as students work on the basic skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in conjunction with equation writing. Practical ideas for teaching the equation as a balance, not as a simple statement of a problem, and an answer will be presented.
