OTF Connect – Exploring Proportional Reasoning Through a 4-Part Math Lesson

Ontario Teachers Federation Connect Webinar

February 2nd, 2015

This session is part of a series entitled Incorporating the 4-Part Math Framework Into Your Lesson.

In this OTF Connect Series, participants are introduced to a math lesson framework that unpacks the Minds On, Action, and Consolidation from the well known 3-Part Math Lesson into four, more specific parts. Each session will introduce a lesson exemplar that will incorporate real world problems in a style similar to Dan Meyer’s 3-Act Math Tasks to offer the context necessary for students to successfully make connections between what we see in the real world and its mathematical representation.

Session 1: Introducing Proportional Reasoning and Extensions with the 4-Part Math Lesson Framework

Join us for the first of three OTF Connect Sessions introducing the 4-Part Math Lesson exploring real world examples related to Proportional Reasoning and how it can easily be extended to what traditionally are considered difficult concepts in linear relations. During this webinar, you will engage as the student and solve problems with ease regardless of your mathematical background and participate in the consolidation to their abstract representations using algebra. Upon leaving the session, you will have access to all the resources used during the session to engage your students from grade 6 all the way to grade 9 academic to prove to them that they really DO understand math!
