EVALUATION This assignment accounts for 40% of the marks for the course mentioned and shall be assessed based on the Rubrics or Answer Scheme. You would be informed of the assignment mark before the Final Semester Examination commences. PLAGIARISM : MARKS DEDUCTION Warning : The submitted assignment will automatically undergo a similarity check. If plagiarism is detected, marks would be deducted as follows: Assignments with 10 - 30 % overlap with others: 20% deduction from the total marks scored. Assignments with 31 - 50 % overlap with others: 40% deduction from the total marks scored. Assignments with more than 50% overlap with others: Zero mark would be given.

ASSIGNMENT QUESTION Effective learning of mathematical concepts and skills is facilitated by providing meaningful hands-on experiences through the use of appropriate manipulative materials. Research has indicated that long term use of concrete instructional materials (e.g. pattern blocks, counters, base ten materials, calculators, measuring devices, etc.) in lessons is positively related to increases in mathematics achievement and improved attitudes toward mathematics. (Sowell 1989; Suydam and Higgins 1977)

Discuss the role and impact of using manipulatives in the teaching and learning of any TWO topics (e.g. Numbers, Operations, Measures, Shapes) from Level One (Year 1 to Year 3) Primary Mathematics Curriculum for Malaysian schools. Compile a report on the range of manipulatives, activities that can be used, ways to help children construct meanings and make connections between mathematical concepts as well as the role and impact of using various kinds of manipulatives in mathematics lessons.

Carry out the following tasks to complete your assignment: Select two topics and focus on the mathematical concepts or skills to be discussed. Search for relevant supporting literature from various sources regarding the range of manipulatives available, activities that can be organised, role and impact of using manipulatives in lessons, etc. for the topics chosen. Identify and describe in detail, two examples of manipulatives that have impacted positively on the teaching and learning of each topic in relation to the mathematical concepts or skills selected;

Elaborate on suitable activities (one example for each manipulative chosen) and the impact of using the respective manipulatives pertaining to the concepts to be acquired;

Suggest ways to promote successful learning when planning mathematics lessons that include the use of concrete manipulatives;

Summarise your points in the form of a written report using a suitable format. Submit relevant supporting documents, references in APA format, graphic organisers, drawings, photographs, etc. as Appendices in your report.
