Mathematical Icebreakers FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Back by popular demand!

Be prepared to get students working together on the very first day of class. Discover and experience a wide range of mathematical ice breakers that introduce elements of proportional reasoning and geometric thinking. The ice breakers are an ideal way to establishing cooperative norms in middle-grades classrooms, while promoting deeper and more critical mathematical understandings.

Note: Mathematical Icebreakers is an encore of one of the most popular sessions at the 2014 Conference. If you attended this session at last year's conference, we ask that you please do not attend again, to ensure ample space is available for new attendees. For an entirely new session with this presenter, you may wish to attend: Problems Picante: Seeing Stars! on Friday at 11:15 am
