Learning to Think in a Math Lab.
Charbonneau, Manon P.
This document begins with a discussion of the author's approach to instruction in a mathematics laboratory. This discussion includes an enumeration of types of desirable or necessary equipment and advice on the management of a laboratory. The author examines issues related to achievement and readiness for more traditional school experiences in later grades, and offers points from his own educational philosophy. The major portion of the document is devoted to detailed descriptions of activities or series of activities which have been used successfully. Activity topics are quite diverse and include numeration systems, number lines, measurement, geoboard activities, map making, geometric solids, and others. The document concludes with reproductions of activity cards used by the author. (SD)
