JUMP Math Through The Math Minds Research Lens

Building on the "Introduction to JUMP Math" webinar, we dive deeper into teaching strategies from the Math Minds Initiative, an 8-year collaboration with researchers at the University of Calgary.  The 'structured inquiry' strategies, applied to every JUMP Math lesson, amplify the learning for the range of students in your classroom. This practical, 1.5 hour webinar explores the cognitive science principles that inform the Math Minds model, and how this model supports effective instructional practice with JUMP Math resources (Teacher Resource, Digital Lesson Slides, Assessment & Practice books) through in-depth lesson analysis.  You’ll view your JUMP Math lessons through an entirely new lens!

*Please note: This webinar is for teachers who have already taken the ‘Introduction to JUMP Math’ webinar, have taught with JUMP Math, and are familiar with using the Teacher Resource lesson plans, Digital Lesson Slides, and Student Assessment & Practice Books.
