Friday, November 14, 2014: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
B15C (Greater Richmond Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Joseph C. Mason

Too often we teach one computational strategy, and students feel it is the only strategy there is. We need to remember that not everyone thinks the same or learns the same. I will introduce several nontraditional strategies for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing whole numbers as well as finding the greatest common factor and least common multiple.
