The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple. ~S. Gudder
The purpose of this page is to provide you and your student with resources to learn more about mathematics; its teaching, its learning, and its impact. Occassionally, updates will include the newest research into learning methodologies, strategies to increase mathematical problem solving, and links to interventions that you may find useful.
Some of the interventions we use include the following:
Number Worlds. Students can use several different interventions to assist them in their understanding and development of mathematical concepts. Number Worlds provides a six module coverage of the following strands of mathematics: Number Sense, Number Patterns and Relationships, Addition/Subtraction or Multiplication/Division, Geometry and Measurement, and Data Analysis and Applications. For more information about the Number Worlds intervention, please see the Number Worlds related link below.
Additionally, Number Worlds provides access to the learning trajectories associated with the growth and development of mathematical skills.software many students access to practice and develop their skills. Number Worlds provides a developmental list of
On Cloud 9®. is a direct systematic mathematics intervention that “stimulates the ability to image and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Concept and Numeral imagery are integrated with language and applied to math computation and problem solving. There is emphasis on both mathematical reasoning and mathematical computation. Individuals of all ages learn to do and enjoy math.” (Lindmood-Bell Learning Processes, November 12, 2012).
