Developing Numeric Literacy in Adult Learners
The purpose of this training is to provide a different approach to helping students with mathematics learning. Many teachers/tutors work with students who struggle with math, or who struggle with remembering the math that they have learned. Many have worked with students who seemed to be getting it, and then in another class session it seems like they are going backwards. This training will explain why that happens, and more importantly, how we can teach math differently so that students truly learn to think mathematically.
