JUMP Math webinar

Announcing JUMP Math Online Training Dates for December 2011- January 2012

JUMP Math is pleased to announce its first series of online training sessions for educators of grades 1 – 8. This two-part webinar, entitled How to Reach and Teach Every Child, is geared for educators with little or no experience with JUMP Math. Please register below for parts 1 and 2 on the dates and times that suit you.

The JUMP Math approach embraces new work in cognition that shows that mathematical abilities can be developed in all students through rigorous instruction. It is a method and philosophy that closes the achievement gap and raises the bar. In this two-part webinar, we present proven methods for engaging students in learning mathematics. Meticulously crafted lessons enable teachers to get their entire class moving forward at unprecedented rates by using: continuous assessment; techniques for improving class dynamics; scaffolded lessons that challenge students to discover mathematical concepts in manageable steps while continuously raising the bar; innovative bonus questions; and subtly varied practice. The JUMP approach helps teachers eliminate math anxiety and enables all students to reach their full potential.

In this webinar participants will:

•Learn about the JUMP Math program, its philosophy and development
•Become familiar with JUMP Math’s teacher and student materials
•Learn about JUMP Math teaching strategies
•Discuss practical strategies to develop mental math fluency
•Learn about strategies to develop solid problem-solving skills

JUMP Math experts will conduct these live, interactive webinar training sessions.

Introductory Offer: Participants who complete this 2-part seminar by the end of January can take advantage of a total price of $25 for this program. Please check the registration form for currently available sessions. We will add new sessions each month.
