Read the following scenario, and formulate the response you might give the parent; share your response, and explain your reasoning: A new math teacher at your school is questioning your use of manipulatives in the classroom. They think using manipulatives is too simplistic and that the child is not learning the concepts needed to count. What might you say to this teacher to justify your use of manipulatives?

Explain your success (I assume you have been successful, or you would not be using them), and tell him to try them if his regular methods seem unsatisfactory.

If his students learn from his methods, then it would be a useful exercise, but not really necessary.
