JUMP Math is a teaching approach paired with classroom resources 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 through rigorous instruction.
This two-part webinar is geared for educators eager to learn more about the JUMP Math approach and classroom resources. Through a partnership between the University of Calgary, Werklund School of Education researchers, and JUMP Math, Math Minds created an approach to teaching mathematics that is evidence-based, theory-driven, and outreach-oriented. This webinar is aligned to the research findings from Math Minds, presenting a number of proven methods that teachers can use to strengthen and sustain mathematics ability and performance, improve student confidence, and boost student enjoyment of math. In the webinar, participants will:
- Learn about the JUMP Math philosophy
- Understand how the Math Minds research has informed our teaching approach
- Become familiar with JUMP Math's teacher and student materials
- Discuss practical classroom strategies to reach each and every student
