Building Bridges from Concrete to Abstract


Join Sara in the current series of webinars in the Building Understanding in Mathematics community at edWeb.net.  (Free community membership)

Teaching well with manipulatives means helping learners connect concrete representations with more abstract ways of presenting mathematics.  This series of webinars examines strategies for transitioning from manipulative-based mathematics to using abstract representations such as algorithms. 

All sessions 4pm Eastern Time

September 20: Building Bridges from Concrete to Abstract: Addition & Subtraction of Whole Numbers & Decimals

October 25: Building Bridges from Concrete to Abstract: Multiplication & Division of Whole Numbers

November 15: Building Bridges from Concrete to Abstract: Addition & Subtraction of Fractions

December 13: Building Bridges from Concrete to Abstract: Multiplication & Division of Fractions & Decimals
