Before and After care Program
I believe the best practices in math education include using multiple modalities, differentiating instruction, using cooperative learning, focusing on “why”, versus memorization, and adapting to student needs. Using multiple modalities allows student opportunities to see the information presented in different formats, which increases the opportunity for students to grasp a new concept and reach the level of understanding. Using differentiated instruction provides multiple approaches to new concepts allowing students to learn and to be challenged on their level. Cooperative learning is useful in learning how to engage with a team on problem-solving. Teaching students why math problems are solved, instead of only teaching the process increases the level of understanding.
