Manipulatives in Math

The type of lesson a student sits through can have many impacts on them. The goal of this study is to determine the best way to teach students.  Students participated in a total of 15 lessons. After each lesson, students were to complete an exit ticket to see which lesson type was the most effective. After computing the mean scores of each lesson type's exit tickets, it was determined that students scored the highest on the lessons that used hand manipulatives. After performing a one-way ANOVA it determined that there was no significant difference between the lesson types. A potential conclusion to this study is that the specific way that manipulatives and whiteboards were used in the lessons was not significant to the impact of student learning. Although the study did not find statistical significance, prior research shows that getting students engaged in lessons helps them to learn the best.
