Understanding Fractions, Decimals & Percent:Visual Teaching Strategies

Tue, May 15, 2018 · 9:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

For students to develop a deep understanding of mathematics and link big ideas, they need multiple representations of concepts and skills to make sense of what they are learning. Traditional maths teaching methods are heavily based on testing memory - rote or procedure, rather than understanding, resulting in students who don’t get a concept and are unable to keep up with their peer group. The Teaching Visual Strategies to Students to Enhance Understanding of Fractions, Decimals and Percentages workshop provides a systematic process and variety of visual strategies, focusing on matching visual and symbolic representations, which is the way any language is learned.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Understanding Fractions, Decimals & Percent:Visual Teaching Strategies
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
