Multisensory Math: Hands-On Instruction For All Learners

Multisensory Math: Hands-On Instruction For All Learners

Event Name: Multisensory Math: Hands-On Instruction For All Learners
Sponsor: ALTA Ohio
Type: Continuing Education
Chapter: Ohio
Contact Hours: 5
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.

Course Objectives and Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • Examine the evidence basis for multisensory math
  • Describe the instructional sequence of multisensory math
  • Identify the learning differences that affect math
  • Demonstrate using manipulatives effectively to teach math concepts
  • Select explicit instructional language to use when teaching math
