Making Mathematics Engaging for all Students
Mathematics: Helping Students Develop Mental Computation Strategies
In this webinar, we identify the sequence of learning mental computation strategies in primary school, and explore some practical activities and games that teacher aides can use to help students develop their mental computation skills in multiplication and division.
Mathematics: Helping Students Develop Number Sense
Using the Language of Mathematics with Confidence - Part 1
In Part 1 you will learn some strategies you can use to develop your confidence using mathematical terms. You will also learn about the Commutative & Associative Properties of Addition & Multiplication, and participate in some practical activities to master these key concepts.
Using the Language of Mathematics with Confidence Part 2
In this program, we begin by reviewing the Commutative Property of Addition & Multiplication from Part 1. Then, in Part 2 you will learn about the Distributive property and how students can use it to simplify multiplication. An understanding of this math property will enable you to confidently support students with multiplication and help them to use more efficient problem solving strategies.
