Dear LINCS Community,
Starting February 8th, LINCS will hold a three-part event on area models—visual tools that adult numeracy instructors can use to explain math topics, from whole number computation to higher-level algebra and geometry.
The “Uncovering Coherence Using Area Models” three-part event includes:
- Webcast (Available to view February 8th): Participants will view a pre-recorded 30-minute webcast that introduces area models and provides activities to try out in your classroom.
- LINCS Community Discussion (to begin February 8th): After the webinar, the conversation will continue in the LINCS Community of Practice. This is an integral part of the event where participants can delve deeper into the subject matter, ask questions, and share experiences of working with area models in their classrooms.
- Webinar (March 1st from 3PM – 4PM EST): Participants who have viewed the webcast will then come together to interact, ask questions, and discuss coherence (a Common Core State Standards priority that links topics and thinking across grades). Register today!
The webcast will be available to view on the LINCS YouTube Channel starting February 8th.
The discussion will be accessible in the LINCS Math and Numeracy, College and Career Standards, and Evidence-Based Professional Development groups. This is part three of our three-part event, where participants have a chance to further explore the subject matter, ask engaging questions, and share first-hand experiences of working with area models in their classrooms.
Area models are accessible to math students of all levels and are a great way for learners to visualize numeracy concepts. We hope you can join us for this exciting event!
