Tools for Math Success in College and Careers: Collaborative Problem Solving, Listening, and Communication
Tuesday, December 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
The Skokie School, Community Room
Join Max Ray-Riek of the Math Forum at NCTM for an interactive parents' workshop exploring how collaborative group problem-solving sets students up to be successful in math and in math-intensive careers. We'll discuss what it means to have rigorous standards for listening and communicating in math, how exposure to multiple approaches supports successful students to be sense-makers with deep understanding who never hit that "math wall," and how math-intensive careers require students to be able to problem-solve collaboratively and support their math skills with strong interpersonal skills.
