Five Keys to teaching using MathLine GETTING STARTED WITH MATHLINE

Five Keys to teaching using MathLine Will ensure your students succeed

Five Keys to teaching using MathLine Makes teaching math more fun & easier

Five Keys to teaching using MathLine Increases teachers’ CONFIDENCE teaching math!

Key 1 Students learn on MathLine because of the one-to-one correspondence. Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine between the concrete object and the abstract number.

Start with all the rings to the right Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 1

With no rings the student sees zero… Now when we move one ring over… Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 1

We see one ring and the symbol 1… Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 2 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 3 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 4 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 5 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 6 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 7 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 8 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 9 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

Move another ring See 10 on MathLine Key 1 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

If they don’t understand the 1-1 correspondence, MathLine will not help them. It is from this 1-to-1 relationship that teachers and students model over 50 K-5 math concepts. Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine

As a teacher, if you see students going back counting rings when they get an answer – Some students may learn and then forget. Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine you may need to re-teach one-to-one correspondence.

Blues indicate groups of 5 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 2 Reds indicate groups of 10

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 2

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 2 What to look for: Have students use red and blue rings to count more efficiently when appropriate

Clear the MathLine when starting any activity! Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 3

Start with rings to the right when beginning any exercise Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 3

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 3 This way they will always start any problem or activity from the “0.”

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 3 What to look for: Students should be clearing the rings to the right before starting a new activity.

Grouping Method on MathLine Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4

The grouping method is a simple strategy to be accurate while learning with MathLine Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4

If a student were to add: Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 6 + 7 =

They may count 6… Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 123456

Then count 7… Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 1234567

And see the answer Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4

However, when students are manipulating on MathLine, the reality is… Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4

some students accidentally: Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 Get distracted Lose count Or just count wrong

1) Build the groups Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 2) Check the groups 3) Do the operation The Grouping Method:

Example: Add 6 & 7 Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 Group of 6

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 Group of 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 2) Check 1234561234567

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 3) Do the operation

This works for operations, Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4 Basic skills, Anytime students are counting groups on MathLine

What to look for: If students are doing simple operations… Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4

And they are getting wrong answers, show them the Grouping Method. Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 4

If we start a group on one bar… Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 It continues on the next

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 For example: When counting by tens….

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Count 10

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Count 20

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Count 30

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Continue the group when they move to the next bar…

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 See the 2 nd half of the “30 Group of Ten” on the next bar

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Another example: 5 x 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Have students build 5 groups of 7 5 x 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 One group of 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Two groups of 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Three groups of 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Four groups of 7 1

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Four groups of 7 12

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Four groups of 7 123

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 Four groups of 7 1234

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 1234 5 If we start a group on one bar… It continues on the next

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 1234 56 It continues on the next

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 1234 567 It continues on the next

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 1234 567 Four groups of 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 1234 567 Five groups of 7

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 What to look out for:

Five Keys to Teaching with MathLine Key 5 If students start a new group when they move to a new bar… And not continue the group from the previous bar.
