About this Learning Opportunity

Introduction to JUMP Math when Teaching the New Math Curriculum, Part 2
After exploring what JUMP Math offers teachers (and students) as explored in Part 1, then it is time to move into an exploration of how to use JUMP Math lessons to teach. Our lessons are formatted as Structured Inquiry lessons, and they allow classes to move as a group, with all students focusing on the same object of learning at the same time. By removing learning hierarchies, we are able to move all students forward to achieve amazing results. Our time will be spent on exploring how this can be done, and then Donna will move through a quick lesson so you can see how our lessons unfold to excite students and improve their confidence levels, while improving the learning of all.
