About this learning opportunity

Students need to know that math makes sense and that they are capable of making sense of math.  Ideas will be shared for effectively assessing the strengths and misconceptions of students, and instructional strategies will be demonstrated that can help guide students forward in their math understanding and skills. 

We will explore the common characteristics of students who struggle in math such as slow or inaccurate recall of basic facts and poorly developed number sense.  We will also explore the progression of math skills and processes.

You will be involved in activities, games, and songs that can be used to help struggling students develop computational fluency, a better understanding of number sense, and a better understanding of math vocabulary.  Picture books, videos and websites that engage students and support mathematics understanding and skills will also be shared.

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
