Lead Speaker:
Jay L. Schiffman


Both the NCTM Process Standards and the Common Core mathematical practices ("reason abstractly" and "construct viable arguments") articulate that all teachers address and engage students in reasoning and sense making. This hands-on workshop will engage participants in problems where justifying one's solution is paramount in fostering increased understanding and maturity.
