418- Avoid Teaching Rules That Expire!

Friday, April 11, 2014: 11:30 AM-12:00 PM
Napoleon Ballroom (Hilton)
Lead Speaker:
Sarah B. Bush
Karen S. Karp and Barbara J. Dougherty

In this session, we outline common rules and vocabulary shared by teachers that elementary students tend to overgeneralize—tips and tricks that do not promote conceptual understanding, rules that "expire" later in students' mathematics careers, and vocabulary that isn't precise. Common Core State Standards "expiration dates" will be shared!
