Author: Borenson and Associates,
and Associates, Inc., with headquarters in Allentown, PA will
be training additional instructors to conduct the Making Algebra
Child's Play workshops nationwide.
1990 Borenson and Associates has conducted more than 2500 Making
Algebra Child's Play workshops showing teachers how the visual
and kinesthetic approach of Hands-On Equations enables even 4th
and 5th graders to succeed with algebraic equations not normally
presented until the 8th or 9th grade.
instructor candidates, coming from five different states, will
be receiving their training at the Holiday Inn in downtown Allentown.
The training will take place each day from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
It is expected that a student demonstration will take place each
day from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
of the candidates have used Hands-On Equations in their classrooms
for several years and are now coming to learn how to present the
program to teachers.
the training program will be Dr. Henry Borenson, who received
a U.S. Patent for Hands-On Equations. With this group, the company
will have about three dozen certified instructors. Borenson anticipates
the need for 100 instructors within the next two years to meet
the growing interest in his approaching to simplifying the abstract
nature of algebra.
the company received their first order from Educational Opportunities,
Inc. who have set a goal of introducing the program to 1,000 classroom
in Africa, Asia and India.
is no reason for young students to be intimated by algebra,"
says Borenson. "Through this visual and kinesthetic approach
algebraic concepts become intuitive and are much easier to understand
than division of fractions or long division-- and much more fun!"
believes that when young students are successful with algebra
their sense of self-esteem is enhanced. "There is no doubt
about the effectiveness of this program," he says. We have
almost ten research studies posted at www.borenson.com
to prove it.
