OGAP Multiplicative Reasoning Professional Development for 3-5 classroom teachers, special educators, math interventionists, and math instructional leaders. For students to become strong multiplicative reasoners they must interact with a range of problem contexts, contextual situations, and problem structures. The CCSSM specifically identifies problem contexts at targeted grades on a progression from equal groups and measures, and area situations at grades 2 and 3 to measurement conversions, area, volume, multiplicative patterns, and multiplicative comparison problem situations at grades 4 and 5, and unit rates at grade 6. This progression, among other things, is designed to prepare students to engage in proportional situations using multiplicative reasoning. This 4-day professional development includes 2 days of follow-up coaching support at the NEIU with OGAP representatives.

OGAP Proportional Professional Development for Upper Elementary-Algebra teachers, special educators, math interventionists, and math instructional leaders. For students to become strong in their application of ratios, rates, and proportional relationships they must interact with a range of problem contexts and problem structures. Beginning in grade 4 the CCSSM engages students in multiplicative change problems which set the foundation for proportional thinking. In grade 6 students focus on understanding ratios and unit rates and applying these concepts in problems involving unit pricing, constant rate of speed, measure conversions, and percent. In grade 7 this work is extended to proportional relationships and solving multi-step proportion problems, percent problems, scale problems, and developing probability. In grade 8 students study the connections between proportional relationships, graphs, and linear equations including understanding of similarity. This 4-day professional development includes 2 days of follow-up coaching support at the NEIU with OGAP representatives.
