Closing Time: Helping Students Make Mathematical Connections

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many teachers struggle with getting through the core problems of each lesson that there’s often no time for meaningful closure. Students seldom connect mathematical concepts with the complex and rich problems they complete in lessons. During this session we’ll discuss the value of closure and practical ways to efficiently plan and execute closure activities in our lessons to help our students make connections between the problems they do and the mathematical concepts they’re learning.
