About this session

Geometric ideas are essential mathematical and educational building blocks of early and elementary mathematics—complementing and enhancing numbers. Our learning trajectories approach is developmentally appropriate, effective, and joyous as it supports children’s natural ways of thinking. Our LTs’ instruction incorporates both old and new technologies, from blocks and puzzles to digital activities. Based on 20 years of research, the Learning and Teaching with Learning Trajectories (LTLT or [LT]2) tool is a resource for providers of PD and teachers to promote high-quality, equitable math education with 7 of the 20 topics on geometry (and many other involving spatial thinking). All educators can delve into understanding children’s thinking and learn why specific activities develop that thinking.
