Thursday Webinar - Practical Learning Research for the Math Classroom

Join us on Thursday, December 3, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm US-EST, for a look at the latest research in learning science and why it matters to math teachers.
  • How can we take the research about teaching and learning and translate it into practice?  
  • What are: "framing," the "growth mindset," the “testing effect,” the “retrieval effect,” "spaced repetition," "chunking for memory," "deliberate practice," and “affirmative testing?” 
  • Why should these and other learning behaviors be familiar to math teachers? 
Join Mathtoons CEO, Kristin Garn, and Mathematics Professor, Dr. Raymond Spiteri, as they outline their research looking at building math skills and greatly improving learning outcomes in the math classroom, discuss the best use of technology in the BYOD (bring your own device) math classroom, and demonstrate the use of Mathtoons Media tools.

There is no cost for this Webinar.  Sign up at to attend live or to receive links to watch the Webinar recording later.

Special Note:
you’re also encouraged to take part in the live learning analytics portion of the presentation by downloading their Practi mobile app before the webinar: Apple at or Android at Create a free Practi account and enter the webinar course code WDS5W to play along.
