Mathematics Strategies Workshop

Mathematics Strategies Workshop:
Student Generated Methods

“There has been a significant shift in the instruction of mathematics over the past two decades. This shift has occurred in response to growing evidence that students were learning how to apply mathematics rules without a real understanding of the mathematics. A particularly disconcerting observation was that student difficulties often stemmed from our longstanding traditional methods of mathematic instruction.”
