Structural Arithmetic I, Workbook for Stern Teaching Apparatus

Structural Arithmetic I, Workbook for Stern Teaching Apparatus

Usage conditions apply
Documentation received with Catherine Stern's apparatus for teaching arithmetic suggests how her ideas changed over time. This colorful publication from 1965 describes a relatively late version of her teaching apparatus, as sold by Houghton Mifflin. Some exercises in the workbook have been completed. Stern's coauthors were Margaret B. Stern and Toni S. Gould.
For Stern's apparatus, see 2005.0229.01 and 2005.0229.02. For closely related books, see 2005.3100.06 and 2005.3100.08.
