Play-based math tasks can actively engage students in complex tasks, take risks, and make errors without their self-esteem being affected.
Academic streaming has led to the disproportionate representation of students from historically and currently marginalized groups in lowerstream programming, leading to poorer outcomes. When streaming is removed students of varying abilities will be in the same class, so differentiation is key.
Committing to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) can be done through small, simple actions that can make your math classroom a safe space for your students, including those who have learning disabilities (LDs)
Problem-solving is an important skill in math curricula around the world, however, it presents many challenges for students, especially those with LDs. Preparatory activities can be used in math class to reduce student anxiety and develop problem-solving skills, through thoughtful engagement.
Webinar Recording: The Productive Struggle – How Educators Can Help Students with LDs Build Resilience & Achieve Deeper Math Learning
Struggling may seem like a bad thing, but the productive struggle a student experiences while trying to make sense of math is a critical part of learning.
This module is intended to provide educators across all subjects with the necessary teaching tools to support their students with LDs to gain the skills and knowledge required for success in secondary school, and beyond.
How Can We Leverage Students’ Reading Skills to Reduce Difficulties in Solving Written Mathematical Problems?
It is now well-known that students’ reading skills have an important role in mathematics, in particular for solving word problems. One reading skill needed to understand and solve written mathematical problems is the ability to make inferences.
EquatIO is truly a revolutionary tool that mathematicians have always wanted but never had. Its accessibility features allow students from all skill levels to enter into the world of mathematics, using the prior knowledge they already have. The end result, confidence and capacity building within the world of numeracy.
What are some strategies that could be used to better support students with LDs when teaching math online?
Teaching math online is a challenge for many teachers. It has become necessary for teachers to find virtual strategies or incorporate new platforms into their teaching.
EquatIO is a chrome extension that makes math digital. It can help teachers and students at all levels create math expressions, formulas, equations, quizzes, all quite easily.
