January 23rd, 2016 – Analysis and Reasoning
Communicating Mathematical Reasoning
Mathematically proficient students need to develop the academic language to communicate their reasoning as they construct viable arguments. They make conjectures and build a logical progression of statements to explore the truth of their conjectures. Also, they need to understand each others’ way of thinking about mathematics. During this session, we will explore how academic language and mathematical reasoning intersect in students arguments.
About the Keynote Speaker: Emma Trevino is the Project Manager of the implantation of CCSS-M for San Francisco Unified School District.

Co-sponsored with The Bay Area Math Project and The Bay Area Science Project, these free half-day seminars will focus on critical thinking across all subject areas. After a dynamic keynote speaker, participants will have time to further explore connections to their own classroom in break-out sessions by discipline.
