In this course teachers will learn how to use instructional games and
activities to develop key concepts in major strands of mathematics. Teachers
will also see immediately how easy it
is to incorporate multiple intelligences into their lesson. A collection of field-tested activities
offers teachers a powerful resource to develop lessons that initiate the
primary intelligences of all students including
special needs students and create effective patterns for classroom learning.
Sample topics include:
Investigate Gardner's eight Multiple Intelligences and how they are
observable in the
Geometry that is touchy, feely
and beautiful - experience activities in geometry through
Ø Tots and Probs - engage in new and exciting probability activities for your youngest students.
Fruity Fractions and Happy Travel - experience fractions and ratios with these
Ø Heartsongs and the Animal Kingdom - learn how to relate facts about animals to
music. Integrate music into your classroom with other fun activities.
Ø Magic and Science - discover what you can do with coins, beans and light to teach science
Ø Enrich instruction with real-life projects that address the needs of diverse students
in the multicultural classroom.
Experience cooperative problem solving
through unique activities and teach your
students to work together to solve mathematical problems.
Ø Deepen your students' understanding of number sense, computation and estimation,
measurements, patterns and number systems "life-learning" experiences.
