I would like to discuss ways to instill math comprehension as well as "decoding," and as I think Michael was saying, how to design and implement practice that fosters comprehension as well as fluency in the procedures, and ways to facilitate transfer of the skills to where they can actually be used appropriately.

I'd like to see math be something you do and a way you think, as opposed to a course that you attempt to pass or a gatekeeping ritual.

Dear Colleagues:



I am in the process of identifying a panel of guests that would enrich the discussion on the Math and Numeracy List. However, I would like to hear from you first on the type of information you would like me to focus this panel on. Therefore, if you would please take a few minutes to respond to the following questions.



1. Have you attended a conference or training on Adult Numeracy &/or Mathematics and felt empowered by what the presenter said? If so, what conference or training did you attend? And what was the presenter's name?

2. Is there a particular area of Adult Numeracy &/or Mathematics that you would be interested in hearing the perspectives from a guest or an expert in that area?

3. What topics would you like to see a richer discussion on?

4. What areas of Numeracy &/or Math do you feel you are deficient in? Or what areas of Numeracy &/or Math do you feel you are passionate about?



I appreciate your responses to some or all of these questions. Your answers will assist me to find a panel of guests to meet your needs. Feel free to respond to the post or email me directly at denneyb at cowley.edu <mailto:denneyb at cowley.edu> . Thank you in advance.



Best,



Brooke Denney, Moderator
