Numeracy and Functional Mathematics

Teachers of students with disabilities often express the concern that their students need to learn functional mathematics, usually focusing on time and money. This session explores numeracy as functional mathematics and contends that numeracy is an important foundation for building understanding of time and money. We also need to consider the mathematics needed by students during the school day and how we can incorporate mathematics throughout the day.

Thank you for your interest in the session! You will be able to watch the sessions as many times as you want through March 8, 2022. After that, the sessions all go inside the Build Math Minds PD site for members to have access to at any time.
