DescriptionThis presentation will help (K-12) teachers discover how to make strong mathematical connections in order to allow all children to experience and enjoy the reasoning behind mathematics. Often our students, as well as many adults, have developed the procedural knowledge needed to produce to the "right" answer without any true understanding of how or why a procedure really worked. We must ensure that students start to demystify and conceptualize mathematics. This is the first step in ensuring effective interventions. This presentation will focus on Tier Two integration of the MTSS model while layering on Tier 1 conceptual understanding. Dr. Chris Cain's presentation will focus on the how to ensure the ability of the students to understand number through research-supported instruction such as Subitizing, analog models, and deep personal connections. This presentation will enable teachers to begin to understand what it means to differentiate on multiple levels "going deep, not wide". Teachers will gain information that will allow you to develop strong Number Sense in each student that will engage the students to make sense of the mathematics no matter what idea(s) (subtraction, multiplication, fractions, or Y=MX+B) are part of the instruction.
Dr. Cain is an Associate Professor in the Education department at Mars Hill University where he holds the positions of coordinator of the M.Ed. Programs, Integrated Education Program and the Unit Assessment Coordinator.
