New research in cognition has shown that mathematical abilities can be developed in all students - even those who have traditionally struggled at school. The brain is not static; it continues to change and develop throughout life. Steady, incremental learning based on guided practice can result in the emergence of new abilities. In this session, John Mighton will talk about how carefully designed instruction and resources support recent discoveries in cognitive science. He will present a number of proven methods that teachers can use to engage all of their students in learning mathematics.
