About the Workshop:
Research has proven that the best instruction for a student is explicit, systematic, and cumulative. Good instruction also uses tools that show clear representations that build understanding. Come join us for an intensive K-5 math intervention session for teachers to help you further develop your skills and change the way you perceive math!
This workshop will model proficient problem solving, simplify mathematical concepts and present processes concretely. The workshop will move through Number Sense (including issues related to subitizing), Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Regrouping, Multiplication, Division, and Fractions.
All material covered will be shown in a concrete, hands-on manner. Each participant will receive materials and tools to immediately implement learned strategies. Participants will have new skills, language patterns, and presentation methods to reach their students to move beyond counting and into higher level concepts.
Each participant will leave the session with:
- Clearly illustrated examples, models, and strategies to return to the classroom and use immediately.
- An understanding of how to better reach students struggling with visual and spatial skills related to mathematical concepts.
- Mastery Manipulatives for both Base-ten and Fraction models, along with an Instruction Manual and 1-year subscription to online video support for multiplication, division, and fractions.
About the Presenter:
