DEVELOPING NUMERACY IN GRADES K-8

Developing Numeracy in Grades K-8: Analyzing the Progression of Mathematical Models and Strategies

How can we develop and support numeracy in our students as they progress through the grades?


In this workshop, participants will look closely at the progressions of big ideas, models, and strategies that develop as students become more numerate. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the progression of models and strategies that support numeracy and the big mathematical ideas that thread through a child’s K-8 school experience.


ABOUT OUR PRESENTER: RHONDA BIRNIE


Rhonda taught grades K-8 for 24 years and has been a Math Specialist with the Idaho Regional Math Centers for 9 years. She works with Side by Side Consulting to consult with school districts outside of Idaho. Rhonda has a B.A. in Education with a specialty in Bilingual Education and an M.A. in Adult and Organizational Learning.


She works closely with teachers and administrators to support them in helping students explore and understand math. Rhonda organizes and leads lesson studies, facilitates workshops, leads book studies, provides individual coaching, and conducts school-wide analysis in order to help teachers and administrators in all areas of mathematics. Looking closely at intervention and how students are initially identified, and then later supported in their mathematics learning, is an area of focus.
