4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET

1:00-2:00 PM PT,  2:00-3:00 PM MT,  3:00-4:00 PM CT

Description:   In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Richard Cooper will detail the quantitative concepts and math vocabulary that adult with learning problems often do not understand.  Many math teachers assume that learners understand these concepts and terms so they do not realize that these students may have  large gaps in their math knowledge.  An example is the student who does not understand the concept of odd and even numbers, and thus, thinks that some numbers are “odd” or weird” while others number are” not weird”.   Additionally, many students do not understand the meaning of  fractions.  The presenter will demonstrate how to uncover the misconceptions and provide techniques for increasing learners’ understanding of quantitative concepts and terms. 

Participants will:

•  Understand the reason why students with learning problems often have limited knowledge of quantitative concepts and vocabulary

•  Be able to use techniques to uncover these quantitative knowledge gaps

•  Learn techniques to help students fill in some of these math knowledge lacks
