Concurrent Session Descriptions

1a. Online Teaching Practices for Math for Elementary Teachers

Carl Lund, Iowa Lakes Community College

Elementary education majors sometimes have math anxiety or other negative attitudes towards math. Additionally, many learners prefer learning math in-person rather than online. This session will explore instructional practices that can help to scaffold online mathematics learning for prospective elementary educators, focusing on the course “Math for Elementary Teachers.” However, some of the practices described may be applicable to other online students, particularly those with negative attitudes toward mathematics.

1b. The Post-Pandemic Classroom

Roundtable Facilitator

Join us for a discussion regarding the issues that have been plaguing us since the onset of COVID. Topics may include the handling of online testing/proctoring, the impact of applications like Photomath, increased absenteeism, and other relevant matters.

2a. MyOpenMath

Brian Abbott, Eastern Iowa Community College

This session offers a free alternative to online math homework, pairing free online math homework with OER textbooks to create zero materials cost classes.

2b. ELA Math Vocab/Usage

Curtis Mitchell, Kirkwood Community College

Since 2017, Kirkwood has offered a 1-credit “ELA Math Vocabulary and Usage” course for students whose past math coursework was in a language other than English. This talk will cover how the course was designed and has evolved, things I’ve learned from teaching it, suggestions for working with students transitioning to English-language math courses, and resources I can share, with plenty of room for questions!

3a. Successes with Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment Panel

Sometimes being in a partnership can be difficult. What are we doing to build better relationships with our unseen team members? How can we collaborate to create equivalent courses while residing in different locations? Join us in sharing insights on working together to build relevant courses for multiple environments. Come prepared to share your concurrent enrollment victories with your colleagues.

3b. Connecting Industry to Mathematics Instruction

Jay Martin, Wake Technical Community College

Industry inspired lessons will be demonstrated and explored by participants. STEM lessons include an industry Launch video embedded in a Desmos activity, a student sheet posing industry tasks, and analysis questions that require student discussion and presentation. Math topics applied in the industry tasks range from composition of functions, right triangle and oblique triangle trigonometry, and introductory statistics. The materials presented are a result of a three-year NSF-ATE grant collaboration project.
