Parents and educators are invited to this dynamic and innovative free seminar presented by David Berg, educational therapist and founder/director of the Making Math Real Institute. The focus of this free seminar will be on the distinction between the current trends and programs in math classrooms and the connections to research and practice that are the basis of MMR that provide life-changing confidence and success for all students.
Experiencing pervasive confusion and failure can break the spirit of students of all ages. Feelings of anxiety, despair, and defeat can create wounding that lasts a lifetime, limiting growth, development, confidence, and future choices in life. It is the direct experience of the MMRI that ALL students can be successful in math. It is also the direct experience of the MMRI that when students of any age experience authentic success, inaccurate messages of failure are replaced with the confidence and knowledge that they, too, are smart and capable. As students develop confidence, not only do their lives change, so, too, do their families’. To help our children/students be successful in math, it is critical we understand and apply the research basis that supports how the brain does math and how students learn.
- Why is my child/student so confused?
- Why is my child/student losing confidence in math?
- Why is my child/student becoming anxious about math?
- Why is it so hard for me to help my child/student in math?
- What is the actual research that supports math success?
Come to this free seminar for the answers to these questions and to learn how MMR can changes lives. We look forward to seeing you there.
