This is a lecture and laboratory workshop designed to train teachers to provide mathematical intervention in a group setting. Rx 4 Math I is specifically intended for students in grades K-5 who would benefit from early intervention or whose basic math skills are below expected standards as determined by a local educational agency.
Rx 4 Math I will build and strengthen number sense, math fluency, math vocabulary, and problem solving strategies within three 30-minute or two 45-minute weekly small group sessions. Students who need to master basic number sense skills as well as those who rely on procedural understanding without a conceptual understanding would benefit the most from this program.
Students will be challenged to apply their growing understanding of number sense to novel problem solving activities that challenge thinking and reasoning. Hands-on, research-based, number sense activities will be utilized as the core content in this dynamic intervention while mediation, Socratic questioning, and the strengthening of cognitive functions will serve as the core methodology. In this dynamic intervention, students’ foundational math concepts will be strengthened while their thinking and problem solving skills will be challenged, all within an atmosphere where math anxiety is reduced and thinking is maximized.
This workshop has two parts:
Asychronous Learning Activities (approx. 8 hours pre-workshop): includes watching PPT lectures, completing a knowledge assessment, reading research/journal articles and reviewing online resources.
Synchronous Virtual Classroom Instruction (8 hours Zoom online): includes lectures and demonstrations with other participants.
Can be started as soon as you register for the course.
