Students with working memory difficulties, math disabilities, and other learning disabilities can really struggle with the memorization of the basic math facts. Even though there are tools like multiplication charts to provide accommodations for students, this deficiency will continue to hinder their mathematical abilities in later grades and in life. So what can we do?
To Drill or Not to Drill? workshop will focus on teaching basic math facts through strategies rather than memorization. Math fact strategies can build a student’s conceptual understanding of numbers and number relationships. The use of strategies also encourages flexible thinking in our students. The strategies taught in this workshop are researched based.
