CGI Math Morning for Parents Shared Goals and Lesson Observations

The Intermediate teaching team received a Cotsen Foundation grant to engage parents in a CGI Math Morning. UCLA Lab School CGI Math Specialist Nancy Villalta and Dr. Megan Franke also participated in the event to share ideas about the principles of CGI, the overarching math goals at the Intermediate Level, and questioning strategies parents can use at home. Participants even tried out a couple of math warm-up routines in which a variety of strategies and creative ways of visualizing math were evident. Many parents also observed lessons in the classroom, including a warm-up number sense routine, problem solving, and a whole-group strategy share out.
