Upcoming Presentations - Courage To Risk 2021

Mathematical Identities: Honoring Development, Navigating Differences, Structuring Delivery  
Mindy Adair, Ph.D.

Mathematical development is complex. Students, parents, and teachers often believe that conceptual understanding is to be mastered immediately, and procedural fluency should follow a scheduled time frame. The reality is, that is not how mathematics works! Understanding how cognitive development, individual differences, and pedagogical practices influence our mathematical identities is critical!

Promoting Mathematical Literacy:
What our students need to know, why they struggle, how we can help!

October 27, 2020 - Live Webinar 7:00pm MDT - Mindy Adair, Ph.D.

Learning math is complex and challenging. Participants will have the opportunity to consider what our students really need to know, why math is difficult for many students, from social, emotional, and environmental elements, to the learning profiles for dysgraphia and dyscalculia, and how we can best support our math teachers and diverse learners.
