Course Description:

Learn to support your students’ development of number sense and understanding of the operations through the use of Stern Structural Arithmetic, a systematic, multi-sensory system that engages students in the discovery of fundamental mathematical principles. This interactive workshop series includes demonstrations of the Structural Arithmetic materials and activities, including games, student videos, and hands-on practice. The Structural Arithmetic Program, developed and taught by Catherine Stern, Margaret Stern and Toni Gould for over six decades, is a renowned standard for effective mathematics instruction. It equips teachers with a multi-sensory, structured, systematic, and thorough program that gives children a strong foundation for all math skills. Stern has been extremely successful in supporting students with language processing and/or learning difficulties, as well as second language learners.
