|Module 1||How can participation in this training help me to more effectively teach mathematics for students with learning problems?|
|Topic 1||A Mathematics Frame of Mind|
|Activity 2||Thinking about the mathematics and the students as I plan|
|Purpose||To provide a framework to respond to students’ individual learning attributes when examining their mathematical understanding.|
|Description||In this activity you will develop a framework to use when teaching mathematics to students with learning problems. You will be guided by answering questions that mirror the components of an instructional session. As you complete this section, think of yourself teaching a group of students and imagine individual student interactions and responses. This framework will be revisited during the application portion of Module 4.|
You have examined the responses of the students from Activity 1 and have built hypotheses about what mathematics the students seem to understand. As you start to plan your instruction, what factors do you need to consider? Let's focus on Casper's work and your corresponding hypothesis to respond to questions about each component of an instructional session.
