Approaching Math Ideas Visually with
Whether a student is in Grade 6 or Grade 10 or anything in between, many mathematical ideas make much more sense to them when the concepts are presented visually rather than just numerically or algebraically.
Dr. Small will focus on ideas that are usually not presented visually and see how using visuals can help a student make sense of what does not make sense to them in other ways. Many examples at each level from Grades 6 - 10 are provided.
Sometimes Dr. Small will start with a visual and ask what idea a student sees in it and other times we will start with a concept we want to help a student with and explore how to create an appropriate visual. There will be an opportunity to ask questions as well.
