17. Using Visuals in Secondary Math Classrooms | Math Conference 2023

Speaking: Brad Witzel

A large percent of students in the U.S. perform below standards. This is especially true with secondary math. While there are many ways to better prepare students for success in the elementary levels, addressing students' concerns in grades 6-12 are essential. Students with math difficulties often struggle with visual-spatial working memory requiring an increased emphasis on instructional visuals. In this session, Dr. Witzel will explain the benefit of visuals and demonstrate the use of visuals in secondary computation, geometric, and problem solving.
