Practitioner Level Course

Multisensory Math 1 ONLINE: Winter 2021

Based on the Orton-Gillingham philosophy of teaching, Marilyn Zecher’s Multisensory Mathematics I applies the research-based Concrete-Representation-Abstract (CRA) approach to teaching mathematics as advocated by the National Math Panel and the NCTM. Participants learn to apply this methodology in guiding students from foundation skills and numeracy to place value, operations, fractions and decimals. Participants learn to use manipulatives effectively to reinforce concepts, aid memory and enhance performance for all students. Strategies for helping students learn and retrieve math facts are stressed as well as structured procedures for computational accuracy. This approach is especially effective with students who learn differently, inclusion classes and ESL learners. The approach is effective for initial instruction as well as remedial work at all levels and is compatible with all curricula and programs.

Instructor: Marilyn Zecher

Pre-requisites: None

Shipping of the course manual and materials via priority mail in the continental US is included in the price.  Priority mail and courier service internationally are available at an extra fee.  

You will receive instructions to login to the course on the first day of the course.
