Brain-Based Learning

In the Math Classroom

What is it?

Brain-based education looks at how the brain learns naturally and is based on what we know about the structure and function of the human brain at different developmental stages. Using the latest research, effective instruction that is brain friendly can be created and implemented effectively.

Tips and Tricks for the Classroom

  1. Rich-simulating environments – color, texture, displays created by students
  2. Active/passive places - places to reflect and retreat and for active engagement
  3. Eliminate fear but create highly challenging learning environment
  4. Link indoor and outdoor spaces so students can move
  5. Change displays in the classroom regularly to provide a stimulating situations for brain development
