3 Ways to Boost Mathematical Reasoning
How to move your students from being passive, rote memorizers of procedures to actively engaged “doers” of math.
Two different sessions to choose from.
In this free webinar you’ll learn:
The importance of visual models
Ever wonder why your students don’t seem to understand or retain what you teach? It could be the lack of visual models. Concrete and pictorial experiences help students develop a deeper level of understanding at ALL grade levels!
How to teach using problem-solving
Problem-solving is so much more than solving word problems. Productive struggle and teaching through problem-solving build mathematical understanding.
The importance of part/whole relationships
It sounds so simple–a whole is made of parts. But this powerful understanding is fundamental for mathematical reasoning.
Math instruction is changing in a big way!
For many, learning math has not been a positive experience. Learning rules that don’t make sense, practicing ENDLESS problems, and stressing over timed tests. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Brain research has led to a better understanding of how students learn math. When we develop connections, focus on mathematical relationships, and help students make sense of math it can actually be fun and rewarding.
Join me to learn easy strategies that can impact your students in big ways!
This webinar is for you if…
- You’re frustrated with the results you’re getting with your students. They don’t seem to retain what they learn and they give up when faced with challenges.
- You’re struggling to help your students work flexibly with numbers and develop strong computation skills.
- You feel as if it’s always one step forward and two steps back! How can you help your students become confidant mathematicians?
A Personal Invitation from Donna…
I've been helping teachers make teaching math more effective and FUN for over 10 years.
Ssh, I have a secret. I didn’t always like teaching math! When I started teaching, I taught in the same way I had been taught. I modeled a procedure, we did some problems together, and then students practiced more problems independently. Not only was it BORING for both me and the students, but I didn’t even feel they were learning all that well.
I didn’t feel successful, and neither did they.
So I changed my approach. I read and studied and experimented. Before long, my students were showing huge improvements! And we were LOVING math.
In this new webinar, I’ll share three of the fundamental strategies that were the basis of my transformation.
If you’re committed to making 2021 the year you transform your math instruction, I can save you the time and effort that went into my own personal journey.
Choose the time that works best for you.
