Overcoming Innumeracy: How Do We Talk About Mathematics?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
What is it about the way we talk about mathematics that promotes the acceptance of "I can't do that"? What might we do to shift the conversation? How might we focus on the way we talk to students, parents, our colleagues, our leaders to build success in mathematics and confidence in numeracy?

Join Jennifer for a session where ideas and questions will be presented that will encourage reflection. Resources will be shared to continue to grow as a mathematics educator long after this session.

Currently the acceptance of innumeracy is far greater than the acceptance of illiteracy.

Learning will include:
Personal reflections on how math is learned
Connections between mathematics learnings and numeracy
Considerations regarding language that is used in teaching mathematics
Considerations for growing from a subject to be learned to a skill set to be engaged
Considerations for engaging in conversations with students, parents, colleagues, and leaders
