Description:

December 6 (Elementary Level Group--Grades K-5 content) -- Please bring a laptop, tablet, or similar device charged and ready for use.



Effective elementary math teachers provide a continuum of instructional supports to help students learn essential mathematical concepts and master important skills. Additionally, math requires significant effort and instructional time to make sure students do not forget what they have previously learned. This intensive and interactive session will provide teachers specific strategies about how to facilitate learning, remembering, and applying critical mathematical concepts and skills in new situations.

Why students struggle learning mathematics--Chunking and Progressions Systematic Intervention Approaches--OPTIMIZE: Task Analysis, Formative Assessment Number Sense--Counting and counting strategies, Magnitude comparisons (place value) Whole Number Operations--Multisensory approaches (CRA), Fluency and automaticity Rational Numbers--Linear understanding, Multisensory approaches (CRA) Problem Solving Approaches--Language and Schema-based Problem Solving Future Planning
