How to teach graphs

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Not specific to students with dyscalculia but here is a good way to work on student’s understanding of graphs and data analysis:

The Slow Reveal Graph (#slowrevealgraph) is an instructional routine that promotes sensemaking about data.  This highly engaging routine uses scaffolded visuals and discourse to help students make sense of data. As more and more of the graph is revealed, students refine their interpretation and construct meaning, often in surprising ways. This routine increases access for students without sacrificing rigor or engagement.

Math anxiety, what can we do?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Read all about it: HERE

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addressing maths anxiety. Researchers have developed many (relatively simple) strategies to support the reduction of maths anxiety. My own approach when providing professional development workshops for educational professionals is to provide a toolkit in which strategies can be selected, tried and combined in ways that suit the individual and situation.
