## Mathematics: What's the Big Idea? Grades K-8

(MWBI_SP114)

This course requires an enrollment key

This workshop series is based on an approach to teaching and learning that emphasizes students doing mathematics themselves and constructing their own mathematical strategies, rather than following rote recipes that someone else has designed. Much research has shown that students who approach math in this way develop a deeper and more flexible understanding that supports their ongoing mathematical learning. Students learn to describe their strategies to their peers and to prove that their approach is sound.
