VIDEO: Gattegno Teaches Mathematics in Montreal (1961)

In these videos, Gattegno teaches maths using Cuisenaire rods. Gattegno first used Cuisenaire rods to teach mathematics, before he used them in the language classroom. Cuisenaire rods allow students to see and touch mathematical concepts before they were translated into formal mathematical language and symbols. For this reason, the rods and associated materials were named Visible and Tangible Maths. In mathematics the rods are used to create crystal-clear mathematical situations, it was only a small leap to use the rods in the language classroom to create crystal-clear linguistic situations. You can find out more about Gattegno’s approach to teaching mathematics at Educational Solution.
