Please join veteran teachers and math curriculum experts Kari Till & Lauren McCrone as they discuss how to incorporate virtual manipulatives into your daily teaching. They share current research on how students respond to these manipulatives and incorporate examples from computer-based learning.
Because of the way our education system is structured, many students come to think of Math as a distinct subject, a different stream of thought to Science or Physical Education or English. But in reality, mathematics – the name of which is derived from a Greek word meaning “knowledge” or “learning” – is the common […]
Counting whole numbers is one of the first fundamentals of mathematics that children learn. Help them to understand how to count objects up to 8 with our great game, At A Snail’s Pace. If you don’t have a computer in class, you can make this fantastic octopus from Crayon Freckles. You are just a file […]
Since the 1900s, Montessori teachers have encouraged students to trace out numbers and letters with their fingers. While there was little scientific reasoning behind the task, Australian researchers have since discovered that those teachers were on to something. A new study has found that students who use their finger to trace math problems seem to […]
Imagine training for years – decades, even – for your dream job. You choose all the right subjects, scrimp and scrape to put yourself through college. Countless hours of study, stress, working dull, low-paying jobs to get a foot on the ladder. Little by little you climb towards your goal. Once you’ve made it, all […]
As important as it is for teachers to have a full understanding of the progression of mathematical ideas, it is also helpful for students as well. There is often a disconnect for students in the math classroom, but this disconnect doesn’t always come from the content in front of them. Students approach writing in math […]
