How Do We Help Students Really Understand Math?

600x230

Sue O’Connell has decades of experience supporting teachers in making sense of mathematics and effectively shifting how they teach. As a former elementary teacher, reading specialist, and math specialist, Sue knows what it’s like in the classroom—and it helps her unpack best practices in a clear, practical, and upbeat way.

In today’s video, Sue discusses effective strategies and classroom practices for helping students truly understand math, as well as the benefits that the Standards for Mathematical Practice offer teachers.
