JUMP Math 2-Day Summer Workshop - Calgary

Date: 

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, August 15, 2019 - 15:30

Join Gael James and Donna Prato in Calgary, AB for 2 days of Professional Development
from 9:00am to 3:30pm Mountain Time.  Click here for a map 
Cost:  $125 per day​

  • Registration will close at noon Eastern Time on Monday, July 29th
  • Resources will be available for purchase with registration until noon Eastern Time on Thursday, July 18th
  • Lunch and snacks will be included.  Gael and Donna will follow up after registration to find out about allergies/dietary restrictions

Day one will be an introduction that takes an intensive look at the components of JUMP Math: Teacher Resources, Assessment and Practice books, Mental Math, Number Talks, and Digital Lesson Slides and how they work together to develop confidence and skills in both teachers and students. We will also look at the supporting research and philosophy that underpin this math resource. Day One is for teachers who have not had JUMP Math PD in the past, or who would like to have a refresher.

Day two. We will spend the morning exploring the RaPID model developed by researchers from the Math Minds project from the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary. This model allows us to examine how to identify key mathematical concepts (called Critical Discernments) in JUMP Math lessons, how to assess student’s learning of these; and the next steps for the teacher. The afternoon will be spent planning for the coming year with plenty of time for individual questions.

You are welcome to sign up for the first day, the second day, or both days.

If you would like to only attend the second day you must have already attended a full-day Introduction to JUMP Math PD so as to ensure that you are already familiar with the resources.  Please contact Gael (gael.james@jumpmath.org) or Donna (donna.prato@jumpmath.org) for a ‘day two only’ code to use at registration.

Workshop: Building Strong Foundations in Mathematical Thinking in Grade 1 & 2 - Hamilton, ON

Date: 

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 09:00 to 12:30

This workshop is geared to Junior classroom teachers who often struggle to fill in gaps while teaching curricular expectations that assume knowledge is intact and ready to apply.  Through a mixture of hands-on activity, group discussion and resource exploration, participants will learn how to recognize gaps, reinforce foundational knowledge and, structure students' learning experiences so that attention is focused on vital mathematical structures and ideas that will increase critical thinking and creative problem solving abilities.

Date: 

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 13:00 to 16:30

This workshop is geared to Intermediate Teachers who often have large gaps to fill in their students’ learning, while covering the grade-level curricular expectations.  Through a mixture of hands-on activity, group discussion and resource exploration, workshop participants will learn how to engage their learners with purposeful math skill-building activities, channel their attention to vital structures and ideas in mathematics, and to further develop skills in goal-setting, organized planning, productive follow-through and reflective practice.  Participants will also learn the most essential math skills that are needed for students who will stream into academic or applied mathematics in high school.

Introduction to JUMP Math - Kindergarten and Grade 1 focus

Date: 

Thursday, August 15, 2019 - 09:00 to 15:00

Join Liz Barrett, Outreach Manager for a JUMP Math workshop.
You will learn how applying JUMP Math principles can help expand your knowledge of math and confidence as a math teacher, while making math classes more effective, more enjoyable, and less stressful for you and your students.
This workshop focuses on early numeracy development - Kindergarten and Grade 1.

Focus areas

Spatial Thinking 
Learn how the JUMP Math resources can help you provoke and develop spatial thinking in your classes

Mental Math  – Counting Fluency 
Responding to the most recent research in math learning, the JUMP Math Kindergarten Resources use simple and engaging activities to support all elements of the complex counting process.  Let us help you expand your repertoire for developing number sense, computational fluency and conceptual understanding.

Mental Math  – Comparing and Composing
Strengthen early computational fluency in your Kindergarten setting with a variety of activities that explore and structure inquiry of mathematical comparison and composing and decomposing of numbers.

    Data Management – Unlocking the potential of the group- data management activities require minimal language and these tasks are ideal to build confidence in students, especially those with ESL.

Math and Nature

Linking your young students to online projects- I will share some websites that are simple to use and apply data management in real time.
