I am a first year teacher and will be teaching math to approximately 50 fourth graders. I know that students can grasp new concepts more easily if they are able to visualize the concepts that are being introduced. As a new teacher, I have very few materials and will need to collect a variety of overhead math manipulatives that will be used to enhance my students' learning and understanding of new math concepts. An example of a math lesson that will utilize these manipulatives is a unit on fractions. I will be able to show my students exactly what the relationship is between 1/4, 1/3 and 1/2. A series of pie shaped portions clearly illustrate this. This concept can also be illustrated with fraction bars in various lengths that will show the relationship between the parts of a whole. Having a collection of overhead manipulatives will greatly enhance my students' ability to visualize abstract concepts and thus enhance their learning and understanding.
