Unpacking Manipulatives- – Anne Lafay

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

In this presentation, Concordia University’s Anne Lafay speaks about her research, “The Effects of Detachability and Countability of Manipulatives on Second-Graders’ Number Knowledge”.
