JUMP Math: Vancouver - How to Reach and Teach Every Child

  • Date: 11/23/2011
Speaker(s):
Liz Barrett
Location: 

Room WMAX 110

Topic: 

How to Reach and Teach Every Child

Description: 

Join Liz Barrett in an introductory workshop which will discuss JUMP Math as a method and philosophy aimed at eradicating math anxiety and enabling students to reach their full potential in mathematics. New work in cognition has shown that mathematical abilities can be developed in all students (even ones who have traditionally struggled at school) through rigorous instruction. In this one day seminar we will present a number of proven methods that teachers can use to engage their students in learning mathematics. By using continuous assessment, by breaking explanations into manageable steps, and by challenging students to discover ideas by incrementally raising the bar, teachers can keep their whole class moving along at roughly the same pace.

Schedule:

3:30pm - 7:00pm
