Making Math Moments That Matter


Feb 1, 2021

Today we speak with Adrianne Burns - a middle school math coach and interventionist from Wisconsin. During our chat with Adrianne, we discuss a challenge that is on her might right now and we’re sure is on yours too! What issue are we talking about? Well, that HUGE issue of student absenteeism and what we can do to help students who’ve missed that problem-based lesson that sparked curiosity and fueled the sense making in the rest of your students. 

This is another  Math Mentoring Moment episode where we talk with a member of the Math Moment Maker Community who is working through struggles and together we brainstorm possible next steps and strategies to overcome them. 

You’ll Learn: 

  • How we can avoid handing students formulas and procedures after their return from an absence.
  • How can we stretch context so that we can streamline a unit. 
  • How to use purposeful questioning when students miss class.
