The IMAP ( Integrating Mathematics and Pedagogy) Searchable DVDfeatures a unique collection of over three hundred video clips, images, and resources which capture a range of K-5 school children#x19;s mathematical reasoning and demonstrate prominent aspects of the children#x19;s solutions. Designed to support professional development (PD) facilitators and math coaches, these materials, when used in PD settings, give teachers the opportunity to consider the mathematics and grapple with issues of mathematics teaching and learning as they arise in the context of children#x19;s thinking. Proven to enhance teacher reflection and promote growth in teachers#x19; content knowledge of mathematics, these videos foster better understanding of the ways students approach problem-solving; illustrate the unique and creative ways children think mathematically; and underscore the importance of precise language and questioning in the teaching of mathematics. #xA0; The video medium provides opportunities for us as teachers to be critically reflective-we can see our actions in others; enables us to watch many examples of instruction in non-threatening ways; provides us opportunities to see that children#x19;s approaches to mathematics and mathematical thinking differ from adults#x19; approaches; raises expectations of what students can do; and enables us to model questioning techniques in a safe way. #xA0; What makes the IMAP an indispensable resource? #xA0; Contains 232 high-quality video clipsthat illustrate elementary children's mathematical thinking and approaches to problem-solving, each with an introduction Provides easy-to-use, searchable videothat is categorized by math content covered, math solution strategy used by students, teaching/interviewing issues, and other miscellaneous topics (technology used, Spanish speaker, wrong answer, etc.) Features transcriptswith every video clip Features Clip Infodescriptions with every video clip and references to related clips.
