Description

Thomas spent much of 2020 creating animations to demonstrate mathematical concepts using no words. In doing so, he thought deeply about a range of concrete materials which can be used to develop students' conceptual understanding of mathematics. This webinar promises to provide you with a number of strategies you can use to teach the ideas surrounding multiplication, fractions & decimals, and will delve into the advantages and disadvantages of representing these concepts in different ways.
