Developing the Coordinate Plane: New Units for Geometry (4-6)

In this workshop we will “unwrap” the new unit Surveyors and Subways: The Coordinate Plane from our colleagues Sylvia Glassco and Cathy Fosnot, intended for 5th graders and helpful for 4th and 6th grade students as well. Together, we will study the math, enacting some of the investigations and routines, so that we feel equipped to lead the unit with our students. We will build this section of the geometry landscape — making sense of the big ideas, strategies and models associated with coordinate geometry — and build appropriate supports for students as well.

When: Thursday, May 9th, 2019
Time: 9:00 – 3:00
