Fractions are typically one of the most challenging topics for both students and teachers. During this one-hour webinar, CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard, will share techniques for making fraction concepts and operations understandable, increasing retention, and building fluency.
Regardless of grade level, there are four fundamental things educators must do for their students to experience math success.
1. Apply explicit instructional techniques effectively to both direct and inquiry-based instruction
2. Develop student use and understanding of mathematical vocabulary
3. Differentiate instruction easily and appropriately
4. Promote the active use of discourse strategies to deepen mathematical understanding
During this hour-long webinar, CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard, examines all four requirements and share tips and techniques to ensure they are all incorporated into math instruction.
When teachers have a range of evidence-based solutions at their fingertips, and a solid plan to effectively use them, they can better meet the needs of students who struggle with math.
Watch this on-demand webinar to learn best practices and practical advice to support these students from CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard.
Help accelerate math achievement with resources and strategies that ensure students receive instruction and supports appropriate to their individual needs.
Each school year, many students fall further and further behind in math. Often they don’t have solid number sense nor mastery of important grade level fluencies. Consequently, valuable time must be spent addressing these gaps rather than focusing on new concepts.
It is critical that educators possess the knowledge and skills to ensure that all of their students move to the next grade level with the necessary foundation in numbers and operations, so they can successfully master more challenging concepts.
During this webinar, CORE’s Director of Mathematics, Dean Ballard, discusses the importance of mathematical fluency and number sense in ensuring all students can meet rigorous mathematical standards.
