Fluency is more than memorization of isolated facts. Students need to see connections between facts. They need visual models to help form a “mind picture” that connects to a thinking strategy. In this edWebinar, James Burnett, President and Senior Author at ORIGO Education, will demonstrate easy-to-make visual aids and games that help students to master the three basic fact strategies for addition (Count On, Use Doubles, and Make 10) and one strategy for subtraction (Think Addition) as described in contemporary standards that are used across the country.
During this live, interactive session, James will:
- Demonstrate the use of powerful models that give students a visual picture of thinking strategies for addition and subtraction as described in contemporary standards
- Show various games for reinforcing and practicing number fact skills
- Illustrate how basic fact strategies can be extended and applied to numbers beyond the number fact range
There will be time to ask James your questions after his presentation. Early childhood through primary grade teachers and administrators, including math supervisors, math curriculum directors, special education professionals, and math interventionists are invited to attend this edWebinar. Join us to learn new math strategies for addition and subtraction to support your students!
