Real-world math workshops at ASU

In a March 23 workshop for K-12 teachers sponsored by Arizona State University Math and Science Programs, Frank engaged teachers in a rich dialogue related to how to effectively teach the ratio and rate concepts identified in the Common Core Standards. The group used five real-world math contexts (gasoline cost, vanilla pudding recipe, dish detergent prices, world’s fastest runners, and Frosted Mini-Wheats nutrition content) to investigate the mathematical concepts. Additionally, participants reviewed activities from the Make It Real Learning Fractions, Percents, and Decimals II workbook. The final workshop in the four-workshop series will take place on April 6, 2011.
