Foundations of Math is a research-based 5-day training course for all educators of students with special needs (K-12). The course is designed to develop instructors' knowledge of the mathematics they teach by seeing mathematics through the lens of a well-delineated number sense.
Dr. Chris Cain (Mars Hill University, North Carolina), co-developer of the course, is a dynamic presenter who is passionate about students with special needs and those who work with them. Dr. Cain will present a way of understanding and teaching mathematics to struggling students - from building the understanding of number to developing understanding of function – that will challenge and enhance teachers’ current thinking about mathematics education.
