Brain-compatible Activities for Mathematics, Grades 4-5

Format: Paperback
Pub. Date: 12/10/2009
Publisher(s): Corwin Pr


Sophisticated medical instruments have provided us with a unique glimpse into the learning brain. As educators, we can take that knowledge and apply it to teaching in our classrooms. With the advantage of brain research, we have been able to develop instructional techniques that facilitate the brain's innate learning capacity.The more teachers know about how the brain learns, the more instructional options they have. Brain-Compatible Activities for Mathematics, Grades 4-5 provides ready-to-use, brain-compatible lessons for mathematics instruction. Each step-by-step lesson includes detailed instructions for the teacher, math activities, and all the necessary reproducibles. Correlated with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' standards and Focal Points, this classroom resource shows teachers how to apply the principles discussed in Sousa's bestseller, How the Brain Learns Mathematics.
