What is number sense?

3
What is number sense? The term "number sense" is a relatively new one in mathematics education. It is difficult to define precisely, but broadly speaking, it refers to "a well organised conceptual framework of number information that enables a person to understand numbers and number relationships and to solve mathematical problems that are not bound by traditional algorithms" (Bobis, 1996).

1. Dot arrangement Consider each of the following arrangements of dots. What mental strategies are likely to be prompted by each card? What order would you place them in according to level of difficulty?

2. My Numbers Number of miles on my odometer Number of sisters I have How old my car is Number of cats I’d like to have My door number Number of years I lived in my house

**Arithmetic Proficiency**

Arithmetic Proficiency: achieving fluency in calculating with understanding An appreciation of number and number operations, which enables mental calculations and written procedures to be performed efficiently, fluently and accurately.

**Arithmetic Proficiency**

Arithmetic Proficiency: achieving fluency in calculating with understanding Public perceptions of arithmetic often relate to the ability to calculate quickly and accurately – to add, subtract, multiply and divide, both mentally and using traditional written methods. But arithmetic taught well gives children so much more than this. Understanding about number, its structures and relationships, underpins progression from counting in nursery rhymes to calculating with and reasoning about numbers of all sizes, to working with measures, and establishing the foundations for algebraic thinking.

Final Thought: “Asking a student to understand something means asking a teacher to assess whether the student has understood it. But what does mathematical understanding look like? One hallmark of mathematical understanding is the ability to justify, in a way appropriate to the student’s mathematical maturity, why a particular mathematical statement is true or where a mathematical rule comes from.”
