I have not seen Mr. Numbers, but I understand it’s good. I need to check it out.

Hi Brooke,

Ever since I have entered this discussion I have put together an entirely new math approach for multiplications for rightbrained learners. Mr Numbers Channel on youtube has been great! I'm going to give a workshop for my volunteers on all these new math tricks. It's as much for me as for my students. It has also driven home for me the need to be very vigilant on knowing what kind of learners my students are.
Thanks for everything.

Greetings!


Now that things have slowed down a bit, I wanted to encourage people who have not introduced themselves to please do so Then perhaps reflect upon the following questions: What are your hopes for this discussion list? What skills or knowledge can you share with us to deepen our knowledge about mathematics &/or numeracy?



I also have a question that was asked of the list,

In an Adult Education class with a wide range of ages from 16 years old to 70 years old, does age affect learning style? If so, how do you deal with such diversity? If no, how did you arrive at this conclusion?

This is something that we see in all of our centers. Therefore, I am interested to read your responses.
