Number Sense Learning Progressions
Strengthening Early Math Concepts
Who Should Attend:
About the Workshop:
Do you notice that your students have large gaps in their number sense? How much time do we give our students to develop strategies before we consider they are falling behind? What can you do to help your students?
The Common Core Standards guide us to develop number sense in our students from the very beginning of their school career. Our children need a well organized conceptual framework of number information that will enable them to understand numbers and number relationships in order to solve mathematical problems.
The concept of learning progressions is important for the understanding and coherence of mathematical topics within and across the grade levels. In this workshop, we will explore each stage of the number sense progression chart and learn instructional strategies to help strengthen these understandings as the math curriculum is implemented in line with the Common Core.
Please come prepared to share your ideas, learn from each other and have fun exploring numbers!
As a result of attending , participants will:
- gain an understanding of number sense learning progressions and their importance to the mathematical development of the child.
- apply these progressions to their own teaching and formulate new lessons to meet the needs of their students.
