Making Math Real at The Greenwood Institute Putney VT

Instructor: David Berg

Offered: June 22 - 27, 2003


Making Math Real builds development by helping children create their own
concrete mental pictures. These pictures link all concepts with their
respective procedures, reducing reliance on memory. Students are
successful because they see and understand what they are doing rather
than
memorize a rote procedure. Through instructor demonstration and hands on
manipulatives, participants in the course learn to break math down into
its core elements. Topics include methods for teaching basic math facts,
number concepts, operations and fractions.


David Berg is an author, an educational therapist, and an instructor in
Making Math Real ([ http://www.makingmathreal.org/
]www.makingmathreal.org) for the University of California in Berkley and
in Santa Cruz.  Take advantage of his only east coast appearance..
