MULTISENSORY MATHEMATICS II - From Fractions to Algebra
Fulfills one course requirement for Teaching Level Certification
Marilyn Zecher presents the follow-up course to Multisensory Math 1. Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Multisensory Mathematics II applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM). Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills such as multiplication, division and fractions to operations in upper levels of math including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ELL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.
Participants will learn to :
- relate instructional methodology to current research in mathematics;
- utilize concrete-representational-abstract approach in teaching concepts and procedures;
- identify common learning characteristics of students with math deficits and utilize an appropriate diagnostic prescriptive approach to instruction;
- select appropriate manipulatives to use in instruction of fractions, decimals, Algebra concepts and operations and Geometry;
- create effective multisensory lesson plans to introduce or reinforce math concepts and procedures;
- demonstrate appropriate language strategies for addressing the needs of diverse learners; and
- analyze basic concepts and applications associated with a variety of operations and link appropriate language and instructional strategies to illustrate the underlying conceptual basis of those operations.
