Register for Teaching Mathematics Through Student Worked Examples.

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2016
Time: 2:30-3:30pm (PT), 5:30-6:30pm (ET)

Instead of having students practice solving problems, using worked examples involves having students explain the steps of problems that have already been solved. This strategy reduces working memory load so learners can focus on understanding the meaning behind steps in problem solving. Students can process the information more deeply when they are not just routinely applying procedures.

Using worked examples in algebra instruction has shown promise for improving students’ mathematical abilities, especially among struggling students.

In this webinar, math educators will learn how to incorporate worked examples into algebra instruction.
