Limited Capacity filling up

Place value is the essential tool to understanding the four basic arithmetic operations. Using a monetary approach and respecting the decimal point, the participants will find creative and engaging ways to teach the basic math concepts to all learners. Developmental theory, multiple intelligences and different learning styles will be emphasized, which should enable teachers to help students – including those who are dyslexic and math anxious – understand math concepts from the concrete stages to the abstract. The final outcome is to understand that arithmetic is answering the question whereas mathematics is questioning the answer. Participants should come prepared to learn creative and infectious ways to teach math without worksheets.
