Dan Meyer taught high school math to students who didn’t like high school math. He has advocated for better math instruction on CNN, Good Morning America, Everyday With Rachel Ray, and TED.com. He earned his doctorate from Stanford University in math education and is the Chief Academic Officer at Desmos, where he explores the future of math, technology, and learning. He has worked with teachers internationally and in all fifty United States. He was named one of Tech & Learning’s 30 Leaders of the Future.
Students often like stories more than math. They consume stories voraciously and produce stories themselves. Cognitive psychologists also describe stories as “psychologically privileged,” the triangle peg for our brain’s triangular hole. Over the course of our workshop, you’ll learn how teachers can apply the principles of incorporating stories into their math lessons, creating lesson launches that engage, instructional moments that feel necessary, and opportunities for students to become authors of mathematical stories themselves.
In this workshop participants will learn:
How mathematical storytellers launch their lessons, emphasizing questions before answers.
How mathematical storytellers create a need for new learning.
How mathematically storytellers give their students feedback on their journey.
How to use technology to more effectively tell mathematical stories through social storytelling.
The effect mathematical storytelling can have on a student’s identity
