Calendar alert - ORIGO Education Offers Free Webinar, Developing Fact Fluency with Understanding: Addition and Subtraction on October 25 on edWeb.net

ORIGO co-founder James Burnett will present the first of a two-part series on edWeb.net

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 — St.Charles, MO – Visual models are critical to helping students cement addition and subtraction concepts. ORIGO Education’s president and senior author, James Burnett, will walk educators through simple strategies to reinforce three primary addition facts: Count On, Use Doubles and Make 10, and the subtraction strategy of Think Addition during the live stream edWebinar, Developing Fact Fluency with Understanding: Addition and Subtraction on edWeb.net, Wednesday October 25, 2017 at 4 p.m. EDT.

Burnett will demonstrate the power of using models and visual games to teach students thinking strategies for mastering addition and subtraction facts, and illustrate how basic fact strategies can be extended and applied to numbers beyond the number fact range. “Number facts are best reinforced by using a variety of manipulatives and games to make the connection and gain accuracy and speed for solving addition and subtraction problems,” states Burnett.

The edWebinar is the first in a two-part series to be presented on edWeb.net. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, Burnett will continue with Developing Fact Fluency with Understanding: Multiplication and Division at 4 p.m. EST.
