Unpacking Manipulatives- – Martha Alibali

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 Symposium session, researchers tackle questions about the when, why, where and how of using manipulatives in the mathematics classroom. In this final presentation, Martha Alibali (University of Wisconsin, Madison) connects threads, raises new questions and summarizes the work of Symposium speakers in a compelling way.
