Today we interview Pam Harris; a former high school teacher turned mathematics consultant living in Austin Texas. When she’s not teaching pre-service teachers at Texas State University, she’s out and about leading K-12 mathematics professional development sessions, writing books, and courses.

We’re eager to share this fantastic conversation with Pam about what it means to do math, defining the “end goal” when teaching a concept, discussing the difference between models and strategies, and why math is FIGUREOUTABLE!

You’ll Learn: 

  • What does it mean to do math? 
  • The end goal when students are learning number sense concepts.
  • Why Emerging models vs showing models
  • Why math is figureoutable and how you can convince students and parents. 
  • Why we need to understand the development of mathematical reasoning and how you can use it in your classroom.
