Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Early Start for Critical Thinking in Math
We want our children to become critical thinkers. Teach mathematics so that you emphasize thinking, not just memorizing. Help your child’s brain develop real analytical, problem-solving skills. Understand the teacher's role of asking questions, encouraging your child toward deeper thinking.

The Five Miscalculations In Math
Do your children run and hide when it is time for math lessons? When you explain a concept, do they give you the “deer in the headlights” look? Are they bored to tears with worksheets and flashcards? Come and recalculate your math experience! Learn the five most common mistakes when teaching math and bring back (or keep) the excitement!

Flashcards: There IS Another Answer!
Memorizing 390 math facts is exhausting. Sadly, whatever is learned by rote needs frequent review to stay learned. On the other hand, games are fun & exciting, games provide practice for the facts, & games become an application for the information! Children of various abilities can play together. Join us for some FUN as we play addition, multiplication, & fraction games.

RightStart Math: Building a Solid Foundation
Mathematics is about patterns and relationships, much more than memorizing facts and procedures. The AL Abacus enables children to learn through guided discovery. It uses their natural ability to visualize, which helps them master the facts and solve problems. Understanding concepts and the relationships between them are critical for building a strong foundation.

Abacus-Based RightStart Mathematics
Can you use the time-honored abacus to teach math? Absolutely! See how the AL Abacus fosters quantity recognition and develops addition strategies. Investigate place value in a crystal clear format. Explain “borrowing and carrying” when adding and subtracting numbers. Discover the simplicity of multiplication. The AL Abacus can be a perfect supplement or is the focal point of RightStart Mathematics!

Elementary Geometry with Right Start Mathematics
Geometry is now included on standardized tests during the elementary years. Students of this age are visual learners and 90% of the math topics can be explored geometrically (visually). It makes sense to teach them this way.

Let’s Play With Math
Is your goal in teaching math to help your child add, subtract, multiply, and divide fluently? If so, come find out how you can accomplish that and so much more through games, puzzles, and fun. Learn how you can help your children become lifelong lovers of Mathematical thinking

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Wendy Braswell and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
