Cognitive Strategies to Fuel Mastery of Math Facts, Algorithms, and Concepts with Elizabeth Hoksbergen – August 3/4

August 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am - August 4, 2020 @ 4:30 pm

Math can be painfully difficult for some students with dyslexia. They frequently struggle with the mechanics of math, including fact retrieval and remembering the sequence of steps in long division or the order of operations. Is it possible to foster math fact fluency, propel procedural memory, and reinforce conceptual learning without undue psychological angst? Yes, it is not only possible, it is achievable! By engaging the channels of implicit, informal, and formal learning, we can create a path for student success in mathematics. Learn specific strategies to cultivate calculation skills, fuel fact fluency, and automate algorithms while deepening students’ conceptual understanding of the underlying math processes and numeric relationships.

If you wish to take this class remotely via Zoom conference call, please email
