Bill was also the coordinator of Clark County School District's Math/Science Institute and was also responsible for K-12 math audits. He served on the Nevada State Board of Education, Regional Director of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) and as a member of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) States Partnership Board. He also hosted a television series, "Algebra, you can do it!” on PBS Las Vegas.
Bill’s books, "Building Success on Success" and "Teaching Struggling Students in Math" can be purchased through Rowman & Littlefield.
In this 3 hour zoom workshop, participants will leave with a booklet containing recommendations on:
- Specific examples of linkages to introduce general, number, uniform motion, mixture, work and age problems
- Specific simple, straight-forward examples that should be used with initial instruction to build success on success\
- Specific scaffolding examples within word problem
- Specific strategies or procedures that students should have in their notes with an example to help them study
- A sample unit test that is designed to set students up for success
Other math content strategies, such as using definitions, looking for patterns, comparing and contrasting, thinking out loud, using models, correct notation and the importance of decision-making when doing math, will also be addressed.
Additionally, this workshop will strongly suggest that rather than identifying a date to observe instruction based on a calendar, school administrators consider scheduling observations based on the introduction of new content they are familiar with so they are better able to address math content strategies in their formal and informal evaluations that result in improved math instruction and increased student achievement.
