    Multisensory Math 1 Online

    Instructor: Marilyn Zecher

    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.

    Program Dates:
    July 2-September 30, 2024

    With two 90 minute online sessions  with instructors - evening and weekend options available. Scheduling of online sessions will occur after the start of the class.

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

    You will receive your math manual  by the first day of the class. Please provide a SECURE mailing address for delivery of your math manual.
