Assessment 3 - Report on child study - Part B

Summary of student understanding at the beginning of the process.
After completing the diagnostic place value interview (Australian Catholic University, 2011) and based on her responses, it was concluded that Polly needed to begin with consolidating her knowledge of 1-9 number concepts. The diagnostic interview provided valuable insight into her current level of understandings and her mathematical way of thinking. Her responses placed her level of mathematical knowledge as growth point two (Australian Catholic University, 2011), which focuses on two digit numbers. The lessons were planned with a view to progress her to growth point three, three digit numbers (Australian Catholic University).

Partitioning relates to thinking flexibly about numbers and links to Key Understanding 6 in FSiM (DETWA, 2013a, p. 60). During the subsequent sessions, activities using place value mats, tens frames, MABs, abacus, bundling sticks, arrow cards, and number expanders allowed Athena to show the same numbers in various formats (multiembodiments) as advised by Reys et al. (2012). This helped her to recognise the visual and symbolic nature of the numbers and see how numbers can be partitioned in both standard and non-standard ways (Appendix D). In extending her writing of numbers on the place value mat, in addition to using the iPad abacus app with digital readout, and playing Place Value Knockout, Athena began to also recognise the multiplicative nature of the place values (ACU, 2011a, pp.…

1. The information I gained from the two videos is safety and the fear of their families and society not being acceptable of their lifestyle (Line, 2015) (Maddux, 2012). As well as the safety of their children because it impacts their lives as well because peers and others will make inappropriate comments about the lifestyle of their parents, which is why Charlotte is so concern about the children well-being. The video also clarifies why it is so difficult for elderly as well as teens to come out about their lifestyle in LBGT community because they do not want to be judged by others or called incongruous names for who they choose to have as a partner. Also, the case states how it is difficult for Mrs. Charlotte to find a job even after her great work ethic and her completion of the culinary training program and in the elderly video it stays how being LBGT was frowned upon back in the day and the same situation is going on with Mrs. Charlotte and her friends in this case.…

When it comes to determining what age a child can understand the difference between right and wrong, I think it is determined by the individual child and the way they were raised. In general, I think a child as young as 6 or 7 can fully understand the difference between right and wrong. However, I do not think at that age they understand the consequences of their actions, therefore they should not be held accountable for their actions. Just because a child knows the difference between right and wrong, I think they lack mens rea. A developing mind is not complete until around age 25.…

For session 2, we did a basic facts assessment over number recognition with our client (flash cards). We decided to do the basic facts assessment over number recognition because that is the prerequisite for addition/subtraction and that is what our client currently learning about. Our client did really well with the basic facts, so for the next session we decided to move onto addition and subtraction. Session 3 is where we finally discovered some gaps that our client has. She had some trouble with subtraction: single/double digit and word problems.…

Butler’s Teaching Concepts of Math was incredibly helpful going into internship. Since I was in first grade, I had the math skills I needed to teach math, but Dr. Butler’s class helped me learn the strategies I would need to use. One strategy we learned in Dr. Butler’s class was using base-ten pieces. We learned about flats, longs, and units. In first grade, they only used longs and units, but called them 10s and 1s.…

If you ask me whether or not I like children, my answer, given grudgingly, would always be yes. That’s not to say I have any particular dislike for them, but an hour of trying to teach them what the number 11 is when they try to count on their fingers can only be described as incredibly tiring. “Come on you guys, 11 is not the number 1”, I told them gently. It would have been another mind-numbing hour had one of the fellow student-helpers not suggested I use blocks instead. We made immediate progress from that point.…
