# CENTER FOR

TEACHING & LEARNING

MATHEMATICS

###
At the Center for Teaching / Learning Mathematics (CT/LM) we look at the nature of children's mathematics problems, diagnose their causes and then plan remedial instructional activities.

Participants in CT/LM's programs study approaches to understanding mathematics' learning problems, examine existing remedial and instructional techniques and learn to design diagnostic and assessment instruments for learning problems in mathematics.

The programs at CT/LM are especially useful to teachers, curriculum supervisors, parents and diagnosticians who work with children with learning problems in general, and mathematics problems in particular.

CT/LM has developed programs and materials to assist teachers, parents, therapists and diagnosticians to help children and adults with their learning difficulties in the area of mathematics.

At CT/LM, we are conducting research in order to develop materials (monographs, papers and concrete instructional materials) useful for people working with children with learning problems in mathematics.

### Regular workshops, seminars, and lectures on topics such as:

How children learn mathematics, why learning problems occur, diagnosis and remediation of learning problems in mathematics.

Individual diagnosis and remediation services for children and adults with mathematics learning difficulties and learning problems.

Consultation with and training for parents to help their children cope with their anxieties and difficulties in learning mathematics.

Consultation services to schools and individual classroom teachers to help them evaluate their mathematics programs and help design new programs or supplement existing ones in order to minimize the incidence of learning problems in mathematics.

Assistance for the adult student who is returning to college and has anxiety about their mathematics ability.
