Course DescriptionUsing materials based on Gardner's Multiple Intelligences theory, review the research and apply the theory to teaching situations. Discover the instructional implications of the latest brain research and theories and how they relate to best practices for teaching Mathematics. Using large collection of field-tested activities to develop lessons that initiate the primary intelligences of each student, including special needs students and adult learners, and create effective patterns for learning math. Combine theory and practice to create exciting and motivating mathematical experiences and align with CCSS standards.
