How to Teach Arithmetic Facts Effectively (Grades K-4)

Date: March 28, 2017
Time: 8:30am-3:30pm

As we expect every child to read fluently with comprehension by the end of third grade, we should expect and work for every child to have mastery of numeracy with understanding by the end of fourth grade so that they can learn mathematics easily, effectively, and efficiently. To achieve this children should have the mastery of numeracy. The fundamental skills for higher achievement in mathematics are built on children having mastered the concept of number sense, have understanding, fluency, and applicability. The focus of this workshop is on number concept, number sense, and numeracy.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will:
• Learn the most effective ways of teaching the language, concepts, and procedures relating to place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers.
• Will gain a comprehensive understanding of how dyslexia and dyscalculia affect number conceptualization and arithmetic facts.

Who Should Attend?
General Educators, Special Educators, Math Specialist, Mather Coordinators, Math Coaches, Administrators.
