Powerful Math Routines for All Learners – Michaela Epstein
Wish you could get your students thinking deeply about math in every lesson?
In this session, you’ll uncover powerful math routines that are specially designed to unlock new ideas, insights, and reasoning about mathematics. You’ll carefully explore strategies and techniques for facilitating routines that you can then use to help your students articulate their thinking, form connections, and learn more maths than would be possible if working alone from a textbook or worksheet.

I always start my class with a brain warmup. Students crave the routine of starting class this way. I’m looking forward to using Two Groups and Which is Larger in the coming weeks.
