Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The Common Core Standards require mental math skills at all grade levels. Students must also be able to check the validity of solutions using mental estimation. The benefits of mental math include increased working memory, and more confidence, creativity and curiosity for math.

In this session, you'll learn powerful strategies to help your students add, subtract, multiply and divide two and three digit numbers mentally with ease. You'll also examine visual explanations for how and why these strategies work. This session is specifically designed for elementary level teachers, but teachers from across all grade levels will find this session to be of interest!
