Strategies for Learning Differences in Mathematics | EDTH.X302
This course deals with two key areas of math learning: computation and problem solving. You will learn the background of “mathematics differences” and strategies for dealing with math anxiety, risk factors, and the importance of developing “number sense.” Important elements of mathematical reasoning will also be addressed, including the role of attention, memory, and language in math. You’ll learn the use of multisensory math and gain strategies for improving long-term and working memory capacity through case studies of students with math learning differences.
At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to
- Identify risk factors for developing difficulties with math
- Recognize specific behaviors presented by students who have difficulties with learning mathematics by using a numeracy screener
- Researching and understanding a math topic in depth before teaching it
- Preparing a series of math lessons on a topic of choice
