Rx 4 Math II | ONLINE!

January 19 @ 5:00 pm - January 23 @ 5:00 pm EST

Rx 4 Math II

This lecture and laboratory workshop is designed to train classroom teachers, educational therapists and homeschool parents to provide mathematical intervention for students in Grades 6-8. Rx 4 Math II student sessions are either one-on-one or in small group settings for 45 minutes, twice a week.

This workshop will enable the educator to facilitate deeper mathematical thinking for students by understanding how to strengthen students’ conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and mathematical reasoning skills by developing self-regulation and cognitive functions through a safe mathematical community where productive disposition, self-efficacy, a sense of belonging and mathematical exploration is encouraged.

    Rx 4 Math II

     Upon completion of this course, the educator participant will:

    • Acquire an understanding of rational numbers and mathematical fluency
    • Discover the cognitive processes necessary for thinking mathematically
    • Demonstrate an ability to work with groups of 4-6 students in the teaching of basic mathematical problem-solving skills focusing on rational numbers and computational fluency
    • Apply the theory of mediated learning while teaching students SRL in mathematics with an emphasis on rational numbers and deepening students’ conceptual understanding of fractions, decimals, and percents.
    • Assess students’ level of self-regulation and determine teaching practices that support students’ SRL development
    • Design a plan for group implementation that would meet the learning needs of a specific groups of students
