    Place Value Essay

    • 2100 Words
    • 9 Pages

    Development of place value Place value and the ten-base system are important foundations of later mathematical concepts. The development of these concepts takes years and is built upon pre-number and early number development. Therefore, the development of place value and understanding of the ten-base system needs to be understood in relation to early concepts. Classifying and patterning are elements of pre-number development that need to be developed as part of numeracy. Classifying helps children distinguish what to count and forms a basis for comparison. Interviewing a student about their answer for a number line can highlight issues in classifying. For example, a student might experience confusion over whether to count dots or intervals (Reys, et al., 2012). A teacher can then apply appropriate activities to improve their classification skills such as alike and difference trains using attribute blocks (Reys, et al, 2012). These activities give students the chance to classify with concrete objects before numbers are introduced to build on their logic skills (Reys, et al., 2012). Therefore, classification is a necessary pre-number skill that can be addressed with appropriate materials. Patterns also build a student’s number sense and problem solving skills. They involve ordering and sequencing which are important parts of counting with our numeration system (Reys, et al., 2012). Activities such as copying, finding the next and extending patterns with geo-boards, beads and…

    Henrik Ibsen’s play, “A Doll’s House” depicted the life of Nora and the events that unfold around her. This play was far ahead of its period, breaking new waters that have never been seen before. Although the play was controversial for its time, in this era it is seen as a revolutionary piece, not only for playwriting, but for the rights of women and the right for individual freedom. The events that unravel throughout the play lead to the conclusion that Nora’s decision portrayed in “A Doll’s…

    This summer I built the classic puzzle game Bejeweled, and abstract strategy games English Draughts and Chess. I did this because I am a big fan of all three of these games, and I wanted to challenge myself by implementing the game logic. Also during the summer I started learning android. The app that I built that I am most proud of is a calculator that works in sixty different numeral systems from base 2 to base 62. I started the project making a calculator that uses hexadecimal instead of…

    Gerber, “The first comes with an obtrusive gesture in the poem’s second line; it’s seemingly gratuitous reference to the ladder’s pointing “toward heaven still”. Without straining the issue, the word heaven elicits subconscious responses involving death and immortality.” (Charters 1160). Frost also looks back on his life wondering if he made the right choices. “…Beside it, and there might be two or three/ apples I didn’t pick upon some bough…” (Charters 1011) is a representation of that…

    Fractions Fractions are difficult to learn and to teach, however they form an important part of primary education mathematics. Fractions both underpin the development of proportional reasoning, including the understanding of algebra and probability. Much of the confusion of teaching and learning fractions appear to be from the many different coding conventions (6/5, 1 1/4, 1.25, 125%), different representations (models) and interpretations (constructs) (Clarke, Roche & Mitchell, 2008). The…

    The freedom of slaves King’s speech has been known as a masterpiece of rhetoric. One rhetorical device that King used is repetition. There are many examples that show repetition but the most common example in the speech is “I have a dream” that shows different aspects of King’s vision of rhetorical harmony. As learnt in class, Kairos shows opportunity, time and place. The speech was so powerful because of its kairos. In one of the sections, King repeated the phrase “one hundred years later”…

    Teaching math can be a daunting task, especially in the lower grades. Teaching mathematical concepts through lecture and paper and pencil work isn’t enough to achieve deep understanding, math reasoning or problem solving skills. Math manipulatives are “hands on” or virtual materials designed to engage students in active investigation to gain higher levels of understanding. Manipulatives not only allow students to explore concepts, but also allow teachers to see what students are thinking. “The…
