What Does Coherence Look Like? Teaching Mathematics with Meaning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Utah Core standards say that students must “experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.” Unfortunately, current U.S. textbook structures and traditional images of instruction mean that most students instead experience mathematics as a disconnected set of facts devoid of meaning.

In this workshop we will briefly discuss some key information from mathematics education research framing the problem and steps we can take to address key issues. We will spend most of the time engaged in an exploration of trigonometry with a focus on meaning and connections across ideas. This example will serve as a model for the kinds of lessons and units students need to reengage with mathematics and thrive.
