When Math is a Problem: Creative and Humorous Ways to Teach Math without Worksheets

Place value is the essential tool for 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.

Participants should come prepared to learn creative and infectious ways to teach math without worksheets.
