Fluency, Number Sense, and Problem Solving: Math Interventions to Improve Student Learning
This session will engage participants in active learning opportunities used by the Developing Mathematical Thinking Institute's partner schools from around the United States. Participants will learn how to provide research-based math interventions to improve PK-8 students' number sense, fact fluency, fraction understanding, and problem solving abilities. Supporting evidence from diverse schools serving students with needs in regards to language and academic rigor will be shared as part of the presentation.
Dr. Brendefur has presented at multiple conferences on the topics of fluency, early childhood mathematics, teaching fractions, supporting English Language Learners in math class, improving student achievement in math, and issues of equity in U.S. schools.
Sam Strother has been providing highly regarded mathematics professional development for 15 years. He has helped schools from around the country improve their students' math achievement through engaging workshops, demonstration lessons, co-teaching, collaborative planning, and curriculum development.
