1 Making Sense of Math: Early Number Concepts Amy Lewis Math Specialist IU1 Center for STEM Education

2 Goals for the course Use a variety of tools to deepen understanding of place value and explore number relationships to connect number concept meanings and representations. Participate collaboratively in solving problems in other base systems to strengthen reasoning skills. Connect new understandings of numbers to classroom practice.

3 Day 2:  Examine the defining characteristics of our base-ten number system by exploring other number bases.  Consider place value understanding in alternative algorithms for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  Explore activities for deepening place-value understandings.

4 Homework Examine the student responses. Which artifact demonstrates the strongest understanding of place value? Why? Which artifact demonstrates the weakest understanding of place value? Why? How would you address one of the misconceptions demonstrated by one of these responses?

5 Question #1 Think carefully about the following question. Write a complete answer. You may use drawings, words, and numbers to explain your answer. Be sure to show all of your work. Laura wanted to enter the number 8375 into her calculator. By mistake, she entered the number Without clearing the calculator, how could she correct her mistake? Without clearing the calculator, how could she correct her mistake another way?

23 Orpda Number System What is the Value

24 Number of Objects and Representative Symbol in the Orpda Number System No objects ~ 1 object * 2 3 objects # 4 objects ^

25 Orpda Number System With your group, represent a group having 5 objects. Be ready to explain why that representation is correct.

26 Orpda Number System In your teams, complete Chart. How does Chart compare to a Hundreds Chart? What did you learn about the Base-10 System when completing Chart?

27 Orpda Number System Using the multi-link cubes (or any other manipulatives that you are comfortable with), represent sets of objects up to 30 within the Orpda number system. Be sure to connect the model representation to the symbolic representation for each number.

28 Orpda Number System Extensions: –Understanding 0 as a place holder –Orpda games Make a flat! How many ways? –How could we create our own number system?

29 Orpda Number System What is the value of this task? How could you think about other bases with your students?

30 Alternative Algorithms

31 Alternative Addition Strategies Without using pencil and paper, complete the following addition problem: What strategy did you use to find this sum? Can you generalize this strategy to apply to ANY sum? How did you use place-value understandings when applying this strategy?

32 Alternative Subtraction Strategies Without using pencil and paper, complete the following subtraction problem: What strategy did you use to find this difference? Can you generalize this strategy to apply to ANY sum? How did you use place-value understandings when applying this strategy?

33 Alternative Multiplication Strategies Without using pencil and paper, complete the following multiplication problem: 16 x 23 What strategy did you use to find this product? Can you generalize this strategy to apply to ANY sum? How did you use place-value understandings when applying this strategy?

34 Alternative Division Strategies Without using pencil and paper, complete the following addition problem: 154 ÷ 13 What strategy did you use to find this sum? Can you generalize this strategy to apply to ANY sum? How did you use place-value understandings when applying this strategy?

35 Using Alternative Strategies Why would we encourage students to use alternative strategies? How could we encourage students to use alternative strategies? What student benefits might you anticipate from using alternative strategies?

36 Make a Square Materials needed: –Pre-Grouped Base-Ten pieces –Place-Value Mat (optional) Listen to the number of claps that you hear. For each number of claps, add that many ones to your place-value mat. Your goal? Make a square!

37 Hundreds Charts Using your (essentially) blank hundreds chart, fill in the numbers that are to the left, right, above, and below the printed numbers. How do you know which numbers go in the empty spots? What do you notice about neighbor numbers? Create a model for one of the printed numbers on the chart.

38 Hundreds Charts Make all of the numbers in that row. –How are all of the numbers alike? –How are they different? –What happens at the end of each row? Make all of the numbers in that column? –How are the numbers in the columns alike? –How are they different? Given any number, what do you have to do to make one of its neighbors?

39 Human Number Line Each person will receive one number. Please come up and stand in a straight line. What number did we form? Who is in our three-digit number period (aka “number family”)? Re-order.

40 Say It/Press It Directions: –Say the number in base-10 language. –Say the number in standard language. –Enter the number into your calculator.

41 Say It/Press It Directions: –Say the number in base-10 language. –Say the number in standard language. –Enter the number into your calculator.

49 Spin to Win! Create 4 connecting circles and one “Reject” circle on your white board. Reject

50 Spin to Win! The spinner will spin 5 times. After each spin, place each number in one of the five game circles. Your goal is to make the largest 4-digit whole number that you can without moving or erasing a number. Now, let’s create the smallest number possible.

51 Spin to Win! What strategies did you use to create the largest number possible? The smallest? What mathematics is involved in this task? What is the value of this task? When should it be used?

52 Plain and Fancy Counting Counting by Ones –Forwards –Backwards –Starting from any number Skip Counting –Forwards by 10’s, 2’s, etc. –Backwards by 10’s –Starting from any number What makes these counting activities worthwhile?

53 Looking Back What mathematics have we explored today? How do the activities that we completed today match with what we did last week? How have these activities shaped your understanding of place value? How would you describe the cognitive demand of the tasks we explored today?

54 Post-Test Please take a few minutes to complete the post-test. This this will serve as a measure of growth from the start of the course until the end.

55 Final Project To receive 1 CPE Credit for this course, participants must complete a Final Project. Each participant can choose a Final Project from the following three choices. Due Date: January 7, 2011

56 Final Project Unit of Instruction –How might you teach early number concepts different based on your learning from this course? –Write a unit of instruction to incorporate the number sense strategies into your mathematics instruction. –Describe an action plan for implementation.

57 Final Project Student Work –Collect 5 pieces of student work that demonstrate varying levels of place value misunderstandings. –Identify the mathematical misconceptions in the work. –For each artifact, write and implement an action plan that describes how you are going to use the strategies used in this course to address the misunderstanding. –Reflect on the successes and challenges faced when implementing each action plan.
