EFFECTS OF A MULTI-SENSORY APPROACH ON GRADE 1 MATHEMATICS ACHIEVEMENT

A Research Study

by

Joanne M. Bedard


Problem

Problem

Math is an abstract concept for young children. What can we do to help them understand it according to their own learning preference style?


Effects of a multi sensory approach on grade 1 mathematics achievement

Recent literature states:

  • Using representation leads to organized thinking

  • Students who use manipulatives increase their performance and attitude in mathematics

  • Knowledge is constructed from the student’s actions on the manipulatives, not the manipulatives themselves

  • Teachers need to include at least three (3) basic learning modalities (auditory, visual, and tactile) in each teaching presentation to meet the needs of most students


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

First grade students taught addition through a multi-sensory approach will show higher mathematical achievement than those who are not taught through a multi-sensory approach.


Pretest posttest design

Pretest-Posttest Design

  • Control group consisted of 52 subjects (n=52) taught addition using a traditional approach for one week.

  • Treatment group consisted of 58 subjects

    (n=58) taught addition using the TouchMath approach for one week.
