Strategies to Make Sense of Mathematics for Students Who Learn Differently
In this research-based workshop, we’ll discuss learning characteristics of students who are challenged in math. Practical strategies and activities will be included that enable students to remember and apply mathematical principles to the application of math concepts. Participants will gain an understanding of how language complexities confuse learners and therefore how to teach students the language of math problem-solving. Applicable Grades: K-8
