Multisensory Math:  Strategies for Secondary School Mathematics Instruction

You must first be a member of ASDEC to register for a course.
Member registration is free and you can become a member of ASDEC online here.

Secondary school mathematics teachers know that many students arrive in middle and high school classes ill prepared for successfully mastering course content.  National testing data demonstrate that significant numbers of students fall behind before third grade and never catch up.  Many middle and high school students struggle with major concepts such as multiplication/division, fractions/decimals and are unable to reason mathematically. This workshop will offer evidence based strategies for teaching pre-algebra, algebra and geometry to all secondary school students including those who struggle with math. Techniques for differentiation, inclusion and intervention will be modeled.  Participants will leave with ideas and some manipulatives for modeling math. The workshop is built on previous conference presentations given for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
