Our schools and classrooms always face the challenge of fostering, nurturing, and sustaining student engagement and learning in the mathematics classroom.   While challenging for many different variables, one constant is the science behind how our students learn mathematics.  Whether ratios or rational expression, triangles or trigonometric identities, the principles of how our students learn remain consistent AND constant.  But, how do we translate them into classroom practices that increase student learning in procedural knowledge, conceptual understanding, and the application of concepts and thinking.  This highly engaging webinar looks the fundamental principles of how our students learn mathematics and offers key insights into how these principles translate into highly practical strategies for learning mathematics. 


We are learning about principles behind mathematics learning and how to translate these principles into potential strategies for teaching and learning in the mathematics classroom


We will know it has been a successful learning experience when:

1. We can describe the key principles behind how our students learn mathematics.

2. We can compare and contrast the contextual variables in mathematics teaching and learning.

3. We can integrate the principles behind how we learn into specific strategies that support mathematics learning in any context.

4. We can develop ways to assess students mathematics learning to determine our impact on learning.


Educators of all grade levels.
