Jaime Escalante once said, “Math does not have to be made easy.  It is easy.”  How come so many students struggle with Math if this is true?  There are so many of us who unknowingly use techniques that actually get in the way of helping our students to truly understand Math.  In this session, which is designed for all grade levels, we will examine these types of errors and then explore techniques that will ultimately prove to be more effective.  As well as being easy, Math should be fun!  We will discuss ways to turn needed Math practice from drudgery into entertainment.
