The road to conceptual understanding in mathematics is difficult. Through this journey, our students are required to demonstrate this understanding at every step. With the integration of technology in the classroom, blended learning can support student growth and understanding in math.
Of course, preparing students to model math concepts is problematic if teachers are struggling with the concepts themselves. Blended classrooms can provide support for both the learner and teacher. Want to learn how?
In this webinar, Courtney Foreman showed you how to expand your teaching toolkit by exploring new strategies and techniques for introducing traditionally difficult mathematics concepts to your students. Explore tools to promote the following in your blended classroom:
- How to implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem-solving
- How to use and connect mathematical representations
- How to build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding
Learn new teaching strategies to support deeper math learning for your students. This webinar will benefit K-8 teachers, coaches, math coaches and specialists.
