  16. @ChikeAkua ignites #NCTMregionals "Let's get it!" Mathematical mastery from Culturally Relevant Instruction
  17. .@ChikeAkua says we are tagging our students in photos that they're not in. SUPER true! #NCTMregionals
  18. @ChikeAkua is about to educate us about how mathematical mastery comes out of ancient Africa #NCTMregionals
  19. @ChikeAkua asks: Do our children see themselves as masters of mathematics? #NCTMregionals know your history!
  20. "Students don't see themselves in mathematical mastery."- @ChikeAkua #NCTMregionals
  21. @ChikeAkua asks: Are our children in the message, but can't find themselves in the picture? #NCTMregionals
  22. "Our children don't see themselves in the picture of mathematics in our classrooms." @ChikeAkua #NCTMregionals
  23. This is enthusiasm for math!! @ChikeAkua using ancient math to teach! #NCTMregionals
  24. It's not just "my style", there are things that work and that don't. Very well said by @mdsteele47 @NCTM #nctmregionals
  25. What can we learn about #math by asking questions from history - from ancient Africa through the moors?@ChikeAkua #NCTMregionals

  32. We can change the world if we are willing to change ourselves. Help Ss see the relevance of #math to them. @ChikeAkua #NCTMregionals
  33. "I am passionate about teaching kids to be mathematical modelers." @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  34. Math modelling is for people who want to solve real problems about what they're doing - @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  35. Kids think we just go to the right answer, but that's not always the way. @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  36. Using Moody's challenge problems in class - messy problems... how we learn! #NCTMregionals
  37. Teaching modelling is not the same as modelling in front of kids. It can be messy. @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  38. Our job is to build a generation of modelers. Math is key to #STEM. @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  39. @RZbiek clarifying modeling in mathematics and why it is so very important to engage our students in messy problems. #NCTMregionals
  40. Why don’t we do good problems? It takes time. Time to plan & time in class & it doesn’t fit our conceptions of math! @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  41. We need to teach students to be mathematical modelers... and modeling in messy @RZbiek #nctmregionals
  42. "Tweakable tasks: anticipating, monitoring, selecting, sequencing, connecting." @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  43. Doing, watching, and assigning modeling problems ≠ *teaching* modeling. Facilitating the modeling process is key @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  44. Modeling MATHEMATICS Is a process and messy. #NCTMregionals. Teach kids it's okay to make a mess to find a useful model.
  45. At the point where we get an answer is the moment when we can introduce more modelling to the class. @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  46. What can we do daily that tweaks a task to make it more modelable? When we think we are done, THAT is where we start. @RZbiek #NCTMregionals
  47. 3 #NCTMregionals ignite speakers down & all promoting and valuing tasks as the way to teach students to speak to and describe their world.
  48. At @RZbiek's session we'll break modeling into sub-competencies & explore the continuum from math task to modeling problem #NCTMregionals
  49. It's better to know how than to just know. Source ?  Get ready for @tomreardon3 to show us how. #NCTMregionals https://t.co/JmrGFQaPng
