Webinar Description:
Math Block requires a delicate balance between intentionality and reciprocity. According to Dr. Meir Ben Hur the development of mathematics depends on environments that are rich in language, encourage thinking, support exploration, and value uniqueness. This webinar will begin with an overview of the critical cognitive functions related to mathematics. It will continue with identifying four criteria that can act as a framework for scaffolding during Math Block, and will close with innovative ways to connect concrete mathematical concepts to abstract representations.
