The Big Picture in Math: Four Concepts the Books Need to Teach (Webinar)

On Monday August 6, 2018, at 3:00 PM ET, be sure to join the LINCS Community Math and Numeracy Group for “The Big Picture in Math: Four Concepts the Books Need to Teach,” a webinar by guest presenter Dorothea Steinke, a LINCS math and numeracy trainer. Participants will discuss strategies to reintroduce four critical foundational math concepts to adult learners: the meaning of equal (=); equal distance between whole numbers; part-whole coexistence; and the properties of 1 (especially n/n=1), the key to understanding equivalent fractions.

The expected outcomes from the webinar include:

  • Increased understanding of the four foundational skills listed above;
  • The ability to design lessons that are accessible to all adult learners by overcoming assumptions about prior knowledge; and
  • Enhanced teacher instructional strategies that will develop and boost learner outcomes.

After the webinar, the Math and Numeracy Group will host an asynchronous discussion to delve deeper into the topic of foundational math for adult learners. Interested? Join the Math and Numeracy CoP and register to attend.  Be sure to check out some of the highlighted resources from the LINCS collection!
