Development of a Math Manipulative Parent/Teacher Training Program for Remediating Elementary Chapter I Students.
This practicum was designed to expand the scope of the inservice mathematics manipulative training program to address the lack of parent and teacher understanding of the use of manipulatives that are used by Chapter I math tutors to remediate students. A second aim was to acquaint and assist parents and teachers with remediation of educationally deprived elementary school aged children by using manipulatives. A parent survey and needs assessment was used to develop and facilitate inservice mathematics manipulative training sessions which focused on helping parent and teachers understand manipulatives for remediating basic mathematics skills. Included in this study are the: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Study of the Problem"; (3) "Anticipated Outcomes and Evaluation Instruments"; (4)"Solution Strategy"; and (5) "Results, Conclusions and Recommendations". Appended are a copy of the parent survey, pre- and post- parent/teacher surveys, and miscellaneous documents. (Author/KR)
