The Grand Rapids Community College Mathematics Department will host its last Mathematics Seminar of the 2013-2014 academic year on Tuesday, April 15, 3:00 – 4:00 in 520 Cook. Our presenters, GRCC Adjunct Mathematics Instructors Monica Stevens and Barb Bouthillier, will discuss hands-on activities (games) that can help students learn mathematics. See below for title and abstract.
This talk should be of interest to anyone who teaches or plans to teach mathematics, or to anyone who just wants to have fun doing mathematics – and who doesn’t?! As always, everyone is welcome to attend GRCC Mathematics Seminars.
Pop and cookies will be served at 2:45 PM.
One Aspect of Universal Design: Playing Games in Math Class
In an effort to engage all learners, in particular, kinesthetic learners, we collected and developed activities designed for instruction and practice in our Basic Math courses. These activities can be adapted for elementary or secondary use, or even for higher level classes. During this presentation, we will explain the process we used to create the activities, their implementation, and the results. Participants will play multiple activities and copies of them will be available electronically.
