Summer 2014- Professional Learning Opportunities for Mathematics
Ontario educators are invited to participate in online professional learning through Adobe Connect. Three different series are being offered and the details are
as below. Participants are required to attend all four sessions offered in a series.
Series Content
Supporting Students with
Learning Disabilities in
Mathematics
(repeat of Spring 2014 series)
Intended audience:
Classroom educators, school and
system leaders and professional
learning facilitators who are
interested in working
collaboratively to support
students with learning disabilities
in mathematics.
Team participation is encouraged
but not required.
Proportional Reasoning for
Mathematics Educators
(an enhancement of the winter
series)
Intended audience:
Classroom Educators
Team participation is encouraged
but not required.
Intended Learning
Participants will:
 deepen their understanding of profiles of
students with learning disabilities
 examine the cognitive processes defined in IEPs
through a mathematics lens
 experience through simulations, the struggles
students with learning disabilities face when
learning mathematics
 investigate instructional and assessment
strategies that leverage student strengths and
support student needs.
Series ID
Series A
Series B
Participants are invited to bring a sample IEP for an
anonymous student with a learning disability to each
session.
Participants will:
 develop mathematical knowledge of proportional
reasoning,
 deepen the knowledge of teaching proportional
reasoning
 investigate the K-12 perspective for proportional
reasoning
 examine components from the document Paying
Attention to Proportional Reasoning: K-12, such as
multiplicative thinking, unitizing, and proportional
vs. non proportional situations. This document can
