Lead Speaker:
Alison A. Wells
Robin D. Agurkis


Through hands-on exploration and discussion, we will identify the challenges, strategies, and rewards of teaching multiplication by delaying the standard algorithm. Attendees will explore a variety of instructional tools that develop multiplication concept mastery in grades 3 and 4 and provide for a smooth transition to the algorithm in grade 5.
