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.

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.
