About the Instructor:

Stefanie (Buckner) Hill will be facilitating this workshop. She is the K-12 Math Specialist for Buncombe County Schools and the current president-elect of NCCTM. Stefanie worked on the NC2ML statewide collaborative for 4th level math courses and presented a very similar workshop this fall to her RESA - WRESA.



Description:



In this session of 4 workshops, we will breakdown and explore some of the new Math 4 standards. Each session will concentrate on a large idea from Math 4 standards where we will unpack the standards together and then participate in learning activities from the statewide collaboratively designed Math 4 curriculum. Participants will have the time to participate as a virtual student and ask pedagogical and logistical questions about the standards and curriculum. The sessions will all be independent but for a holistic view of the course, participants should consider attending all four.
Our focus for the months will be as follows:

January 21- Functions: Logarithms
February 18 - Functions: Trigonometry
March 18 --> moved to March 25 - Statistics: Large Data and Distributions
April 22- Statistics: Inferential Statistics
