High school and middle school teachers throughout the Granite State gathered for the “Teaching to the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice” Institute workshop. The two-day series began Tuesday, said Chip Underhill, Pinkerton’s executive director of public relations and external affairs.
Chris Harper, dean of academic affairs for Pinkerton, served as host and coordinator. In today’s high-tech society, math is being used on a daily basis, Harper said. And so, teachers are being called on to help students learn to apply mathematical concepts to everyday problems.
And it’s a lot to ask of teachers to suddenly change to teaching students to delve into problems and then apply the solutions. That’s why workshops like the ones held at Pinkerton are being offered to teachers in the Granite State, Harper said.
Today, teachers need to strive to help students find where they can apply the concepts of geometry, or Algebra 1 or Algebra 2 to everyday problems, Harper said.
