Discovering Arithmetic Book 2, Workbook for Stern Apparatus

Description
Documentation received with Catherine Stern's apparatus for teaching arithmetic suggests how her ideas changed over time. This colorfully illustrated workbook from 1952 describes an early version of the apparatus she developed to teach arithmetic. Houghton Mifflin produced and sold the device and the publication. A few problems are worked in pencil.
For a later form of Stern's apparatus, see 2005.0229.01 and 2005.0229.02. For the teacher’s guide corresponding to this workbook, see 2005.3100.11.
