SMARTTraining, LLC, a leading provider of professional development in the math methods of Singapore, announces its upcoming 2012 workshops in Arizona, California, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Oregon for teachers interested in Common Core Math Standards or the math methods used in Singapore Math®.
Singapore Math® Strategies for the K-2 Teacher is a fun-filled day of activities and games leading to number sense and math confidence. Learn how to incorporate Singapore's Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach into any curriculum. Learn games and activities leading to "subtitizing" (identifying a quantity without counting using a one to one correspondence).
Intro to Problem Solving Utilizing the Famous Singapore Bar Model Method is designed for teachers of grades 2 6. Participants will learn how to create confidence in students so that the transition from arithmetic to algebra is a small step, not a huge leap. Model drawing as a versatile tool to be used for problem solving will be emphasized. Additional problem solving methods will also be presented. Common Core Mathematical Practice Standards require students to, among other things, make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, and model with mathematics. http://www.corestandards.org. Singapore methods provide ways to meet these standards.
