                                    VCTM Fall Conference

                                             October 24, 2003
                                        Windsor State St. School

                    Number Sense Making Sense of it All:  
                       Teaching and Assessment
      (including presentations about the state of testing in Vermont)


8:30-9:00 Registration, Coffee and Light Refreshments

9:10-10:20 

1.  K-6  Case Studies: What the Research Says About Number Sense  We will
examine case studies of mathematics teaching in elementary school classrooms
to help us make sense of children’s strategies for solving number sense
problems. We will explore children's understanding of place value in our
base ten numbers system and how their understanding of place value affects
their work with computation.  Presenter  Maureen Neumann  UVM

2.  4-6  Large Number Concepts  This workshop will show ways to help young
students understand large numbers.  Presenter Amy Patoine Gale  Sutton
School

3.  6-8  Integer Games  Revisiting favorite integer activities such as Sam
the Mailman, Zero the Hero, and Walk the Line.  Presenter Carole Fortier
Castleton School

4.  7-12 (with interesting things for even earlier years) Bringing Posters
to Life  Learn how to utilize posters and math materials to enrich lessons.
Presenter  Barbara Lee Chertok  Books Ink, Ogunquit, Maine

5.  9-12  Vectors  The NCTM Standards include a study of vectors for 9-12
students in the number sense strand.  This presentation will delve into that
area.  Presenter Ted Marsden  Norwich University

10:30-11:40

6.  K-6  Developing Number Sense  Children are surrounded by numbers in
their daily lives but how many are really counting numbers? This
presentation explores ways in which different uses of number such as
ordinals, nominals, measures and rates can confuse students when they are
developing their counting skills and number sense. When does 6 subtract 6
equal 5?.  Presenter Tim Whiteford  South Burlington Schools    
 
7.  4-6  Making Sense of Fractions The presenter will provide a number of
problems that encourage an understanding of fractions and how to work with
them, especially when multiplying and dividing fractions.  Discussion will
include strategies for solving problems, rather than following rules.
Presenter Karla Karstens  UVM

8.  6-8  Floor Graphs  Middle school mathematics students manipulate tables
and graphs as part of their regular classroom experience, but do they really
understand the number concepts behind what they are doing? Participants will
utilize floor graphs and graphing calculator technology as a means of really
understanding graphs and will explore the mathematical richness of the
concepts they represent. Examples will be given to illustrate how this
methodology can be superimposed into standards-based curricula.  Presenter
Sharon Fadden Danville School

9.  9-12  Putting Sequences First This presentation will show how a
reordering of topics can bring more meaning to the curriculum.  Harvie
Porter  Randolph Union High School

11:45-1:15 Lunch and Business Meeting

Luncheon Speakers:  Bud Myers, Aldo Bianchi, and Deb Armitage 
                        The State of Testing in Vermont - (General Comments
and Questions)

1:30- 3:00 

10.  K-4  Developing Number Sense Through Math Literacy  Presenter Christine
Hopkinson and others  Chittenden County South Schools

11.  K-6  Specifics about Testing in Vermont  This presentation will offer
more specific information about the tests than the general luncheon question
and answer session.  Presenter  Deb Armitage

12.  K-5  Making Sense of Numbers Through Science Activities  This
presentation will take advantage of comparing, measuring, graphing,
calculating, and patterning to integrate math and science curricula.
Presenter Betty Young Curriculum Trainer for Everyday Math, CMP, Science
Companion and Effective Teaching Practices.

13.  7-12  Specifics about Testing in Vermont  This presentation will offer
more specific information about the tests than the general luncheon question
and answer session.  Presenter Aldo Bianchi  VT DOE and Vermont Institutes

The following resource persons will also be available throughout the day:

Steve Peery will show materials that he has developed for effective
assessment utilizing computers.
Barbara Lee Chertok will have available, for you to examine, some of the
materials that she uses to enrich learning (see presentation # 4).

Jean McKenny will provide a service of updating operating systems and adding
Apps to calculators.  Bring TI-73, 83+, 89, 92+ calculator (or two or three)
with fresh batteries and learn how to do this.
