Webinar format

Tremain Nelson has served in several roles in education over the past 15 years, including as a teacher, administrator and educational consultant. As a teacher, he worked closely with low-income high school students that were taking Algebra for the second or third time, and his classroom was so effective that was featured on Annenberg’s Insights into Algebra Workshop. In this session we will explore the rapid increase in the world’s technological advancements, our schools are now faced with the choice between fostering consumers of science, technology, engineering, and art or empowering producers. It is becoming increasingly unacceptable for students to exit their elementary and secondary schools as illiterate mathematicians. With math as the foundation for it all, it is essential that we remember to put the “M” in STEM. Math literacy is characterized by a student’s ability to authentically read, write, speak, think, and listen using the language of mathematics. In this sense, learning mathematics is just like learning another language. Our students can become proficient in this language by learning to think and communicate like literate mathematicians.
