Description:

Elementary math classes often incorporate manipulatives to help students extend their math reasoning from concrete to abstract. Too often, this practice is abandoned in the higher grades. Yet the use of manipulatives by learners of all ages is an effective way to increase conceptual understanding of math concepts, as called for by the Connecticut Core Standards (CCS) for Math. Manipulatives can be especially useful for English learners, struggling math learners, and any student who may be disengaged.

In the four sessions of this series, middle school educators will be introduced to fraction bars and algebra tiles. Participants will practice using these manipulatives and incorporate them into lessons aligned with the CCS. Throughout the school year, between sessions, the participants will post ideas through a web-based platform. At the final session, participants will share their classroom experiences and lessons with one another.
