Hill Strategies for Math provides K-5 classroom teachers with research-based strategies to support all learners, develop students’ conceptual understanding of math concepts, and differentiate instruction. Students learn by utilizing manipulatives to develop understanding of basic “concrete” math concepts. Instructors scaffold lessons on these basic skills until students have mastered them and can understand higher level “abstract” math concepts. Students learn how to approach and solve numerous types of word problems. Hill Strategies for Math includes a student pre-assessment so instructors can target specific gaps and skills development for each student right from the start.
This workshop includes instructional tasks and resources to meet teacher needs in the following important areas: Fluency, Number Sense & Review, Problem Solving, Computation & Application, and Reflection.
