When students struggle

When Students Struggle..

Modifying and accommodating

  • What types of accommodations do we try?

  • What types of modifications do we try?


Why would cra be effective

Why Would CRA be Effective?

  • Multimodal forms of math acquisition to aid memory and retrieval (Engelkamp & Zimmer; Nilsson)

  • Multiple learning styles are being met to aid relevance and motivation (Oberer)

  • Meaningful manipulations of materials allow students to rationalize abstract mathematics (Demby; Noice & Noice)

  • Provides an alternative to algorithm memorization of math rules(Witzel)

  • Transportable without concrete materials (Witzel)


Teach to mastery with cra

Teach to Mastery with CRA

  • Model and guide students in their use of manipulative objects and pictorial representations

  • Teach students step by step gradually introducing mathematical vocabulary.

  • Move from concrete to representational to abstract only after students show accuracy without hesitations in manipulations or drawings.

  • Assess each level of learning.


Hundreds of ways

Hundreds of Ways

What can your students learn by using a hundred chart?

  • Relative position of whole numbers

  • Number sense

  • Flexible use of numbers

  • Addition and subtraction of whole numbers


Inches and feet

Inches and Feet

What can your students learn from constructing their own measuring tools?

  • Conversion of units within a system of measurement


How big is a foot

How Big is a Foot?

What can your students learn about standard and non-standard measurement?

  • Recognize the attributes of length

  • How to measure using non-standard units

  • Recognize the importance of standard measurement


Triangles

Triangles

What can your students learn by using a geoboard?

  • The attributes of two-dimensional shapes

  • Classification of two-dimensional shapes

  • Develop geometric vocabulary


How does your garden grow

How Does Your Garden Grow?

What can your students learn about area and perimeter by using color tiles?

  • Students find different perimeters using a constant area


Cra in action1

CRA IN ACTION

  • Lesson template

  • Spending more time on the concrete and the representational results in greater understanding in the abstract

  • Representational is the bridge from concrete to abstract

  • Abstract assessment is not always necessary

  • CRA makes learning FUN
