Strategies to Make Sense of Mathematics for Students Who Learn Differently

December 2, 2015

1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

The Summit School


In this research-based workshop, we'll discuss learning characteristics of students who are challenged in math. Practical strategies and activities will be included that enable students to remember and apply mathematical principles to the application of math concepts. Participants will gain an understanding of how language complexities confuse learners and therefore how to teach students the language of math problem-solving.

STEM in the Classroom

December 7, 2015

9:00 AM to 2:03 PM

Roland Park Country School


Modern technology plays a critical role in scientific disciplines. Participants in this workshop will experience how students in The STEM Institute at Roland Park learn to use the programming language, SCRATCH, to create various computer models for exploring a variety of aspects of the natural world. We'll also learn how to teach students to create programs to model magnetic fields, to manipulate variables to study seasonal change, and to study the impact of distractors on short term memory. During this presentation participants will discuss how admissions/enrollment management has changed in the last several years and how independent schools are and should be adjusting to these changes.
