|Event Name:||Multisensory Math: Hands-On Instruction For All Learners|
|Dates / Times:||Saturday, February 25, 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM|
This one day seminar will offer participants a chance to experience the power of a multisensory approach to teaching mathematics. The evidence basis for this approach, the instructional sequence, and a description of learning differences, which impact performance in mathematics, will be covered.
Research suggests that when manipulatives are effectively used, student performance is enhanced and more information is retained. All students benefit from using manipulative objects to explore math concepts. Participants will learn effective methods for using manipulatives to teach math concepts and implicit instructional language to meet the needs of all learners. Concepts from early elementary school through early algebra will be modeled with special emphasis on numeracy, place value, basic operations, multiplication, division, and fractions.
