When you cook rice, what is the proportion of rice to water you use? Come experience how having students explore this question can lead them to understand the concept of ratios as a relationship between quantities.

The SABES Program Support and Math and Adult Numeracy C & I PD Centers are pleased to partner to provide this session. The first hour will focus on the lesson that Math PD specialist and teacher Connie Rivera used with her students. You will experience the activity as a learner and hear about the background of the activity. She will review how to make a chart or graph in Google Sheets, and you will have hands-on time to create charts and discuss together with the group how you might use a similar activity in your class. 

The last half hour is reserved for your questions about other digital literacy, distance education, or blended learning topics. It will help us to prepare if you could please post your questions to our Coffee Hour Padlet by April 18.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Anyone with an existing understanding of using spreadsheets who works with students on math and who would like to develop or enhance lessons involving spreadsheets and charts

This session is for those who already have some experience working with Google products such as Drive or Docs. Those who are new to these tools and who are interested in exploring a lesson on creating and interpreting charts are invited to register for the coffee hour on Tuesday, April 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Please note that there will be overlap between the two sessions.

The total time for this PD activity is one hour, with an option for an additional half hour discussion of questions and ideas about anything related to digital literacy and distance education.


  • Monday, April 26 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • The facilitator will provide support via a discussion board through May 10.
