NEW! Multiplication Strategies: Multi-Digit Numbers
This course will provide educators with strategies for teaching multi-digit multiplication based on place value and properties. Teaching multiplication in a way that connects with the learning progressions and Montana content standards is essential. Participants will have multiple opportunities to learn, practice, and analyze the strategies for efficiency.
But What About Fact Fluency?
"My kids just don't know their math facts!" If you have said this before and want to learn how to best help students improve fact fluency, this course will be valuable to you!
Addition & Subtraction Strategies
Learn the various strategies for addition and subtraction based on place value, properties, and the inverse relationship.
"My kids just don't know their multiplication facts!" Have you ever found yourself say that statement? If so, this course is for you.
