In this workshop, you will experience games, activities, models, and strategies that help students develop a robust understanding of subtraction. We will explore how to create a fun and rich learning atmosphere in your classroom.
Come learn how to help your students:
- understand when contexts call for removal versus finding the difference
- use models to communicate student thinking when solving problems
- develop flexibility, efficiency, and creativity with subtraction strategies, and
- switch between difference and removal regardless of the context, in order to use an efficient strategy.
Your students, their parents, and higher math teachers will thank you for coming to this workshop.
