Elementary School Teachers' Manipulative Use
Uribe-Florez, Lida J.; Wilkins, Jesse L. M.
School Science and Mathematics, v110 n7 p363-371 Nov 2010
Using data from 503 inservice elementary teachers, this study investigated the relationship between teachers' background characteristics, teachers' beliefs about manipulatives, and the frequency with which teachers use manipulatives as part of their mathematics instruction. Findings from the study show that teachers' grade level and beliefs about manipulatives are important predictors of teachers' use of manipulatives in their mathematics instruction.
