How to Reach and Teach Every Child (Introduction)

Focus Audience: Teachers of Grades 1–8, Learning Assistance Specialists, and EAs with little or no experience with JUMP Math.

JUMP Math is a method and philosophy aimed at eradicating math anxiety and enabling students to reach their full potential in mathematics. New work in cognition has shown that mathematical abilities can be developed in all students (even ones who have traditionally struggled at school) through rigorous instruction.

In this two-part webinar we will present a number of proven methods that teachers can use to engage their students in learning mathematics. By using continuous assessment, by breaking explanations into manageable steps, and by challenging students to discover ideas by incrementally raising the bar, teachers can keep their whole class moving along at roughly the same pace. You will:

  • Learn about the JUMP Math program, its philosophy and development
  • Become familiar with JUMP Math's teacher and student materials
  • Learn about JUMP Math teaching strategies
  • Discuss practical strategies to develop mental math fluency
  • Look at our confidence building unit for engaging reluctant learners
  • Learn about strategies to develop solid problem solving skills

This four-hour webinar costs $49. The fee includes Part 1 and Part 2, both of which must be completed in sequence. For your convenience, we run sessions regularly, and each of Part 1 and Part 2 can be completed in a manageable 2 hours. You will receive an e-mail 2 days prior to the webinar containing detailed instructions on how to log in.
