practicing multiplication story problems. These story problems included multiplication problems that were more advanced. So, I wanted the students be able to solve word problems that involve multiplying three or four digit numbers by one. Or, two digit numbers by two digit numbers. I also wanted them to demonstrate and practice proper group work expectations since Ms. Bell has been working diligently to establish positive group work in their lessons. Overall, this lesson went very well. The…
going around the room asking the children to explain how they added the numbers in their head. For instance if a child turned over a 3, a 9, and a 1. The easiest addition equation for the children at this age is to first do 9+1, to get 10, and then add 3 to that. Thus the equation would not be the order in which the cards were turned over, 3+9+1, but 9+1+3. The teacher was stressing this idea that the children could add up the number in any way they like, but the equation needed to represent…
some or little knowledge of numbers and counting. They can count five to ten objects accurately and can also read some numbers, but many other children have not developed this knowledge that’s why I felt it was important to teach them. Children in particular need many opportunities to learn how to count things, and to learn to read and write numbers. A small number of three year olds may still be hard for a child to accurately figure out how to accurately determine the number of items in a…
(Highlight and Explain): (1) Converting a fraction into a decimal 1 Weak 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Strong Explain how to do the concept: To convert a fraction into a decimal you have to divide the smaller number by the larger number(adding zeros to the number if needed) and the answer of the equation would result into your decimal.…
Counters are tokens which represent units or numbers, so they can be anything. Teachers can cheaply acquire or make a bulk amount of counters to use. Some examples of what teachers often use for this manipulative are: dried beans, popcorn kernels, jelly beans, colored paper squares, marshmallows or…
Section A: Description of Two Young Children’s Mathematical Activity Anus’s Spontaneous Mathematical Activity The polygon puzzle is the most popular activity in my kindergarten. The puzzles are made up of a set of strong and colorful shapes. Children enjoy using the puzzles to create different creative flat shapes and even three-dimensional shapes. The Early Year Learning Framework (EYLF) emphasizes the importance of children being able to resource their leaning through processed materials…
understand that 10 is a base number and that there are ten 10’s in 100. These can be helpful to ensure that the students understand the meaning of the different place values such as the ones, tens, and hundreds. These are important for first graders to know. This is a good manipulative to have at the beginning of the school year because as kindergarteners its important that they know the numbers up to 100. Unifix cubes are great for students to visualize numbers and patterns of numbers because…
knowledge, humans are the only creatures on earth that are able to contemplate infinity. We commonly talk about the infinite universe (which cosmologists now tell us is almost certainly finite but unbounded), we speak of infinite number series, such as the set of even numbers, and we use it metaphorically, as in saying someone has “infinite patience.” Time itself is spoken of as infinite, though it is always tied to finite objects which are changing and we can 't even come up with a coherent…
