To Drill or Not to Drill: Math Facts Through Strategies—July 15th, 9am –4pm #SU1529402
Students are expected to master their basic math facts but many struggle to do so. Research shows that instruction of strategies for basic facts increases students’ likelihood of mastery and retention. Many students develop their own strategies. However, these strategies can be ineffective and inefficient. In this workshop, you will learn strategy-based instruction for all basic math facts for all four basic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
