Have you ever noticed how a simple pie chart can immediately turn your classroom into a group of fast learners? Your students instantly get ideas it would take them much longer to put together if they were reviewing words and numbers.
Our brains process visual information, the brain’s native language, much more efficiently than words and numbers.
So here’s a simple thought: Why not make much greater use of visual information in your math classes to accelerate student learning?
Join math teaching expert Marian Small for a webinar that will change your thinking about how you teach math and give you lots of ideas, sample tasks and visuals to use with your students right away! She will show you how to incorporate drawings, pictures, videos, photos and concrete manipulatives in everyday math classes.
Visual teaching not only makes math accessible to more learners, but will enrich student math discussions. This approach to instruction works for geometry, measurement, data, numbers, pattern and algebra at all grade levels, K-12.
