    • Students have learnt to add three one-digit numbers prior to this lesson. These are grade one students towards the end of the school year.
    • The problem-solving lesson in the video follows the lesson we studied yesterday in the Open Lesson.

    • Number Bonds
      Number Bonds is emphasized prior to the learning of addition.
      Children are given, say, 5 unifix cubes and guided to see that 1 and 4 make 5, for example. Others may say that 3 and 2 make 5 or 4 and 1 make 5. Yet others may say that 5 and 0 make 5.

    • Addition Facts
      Addition Facts are given emphasis in the first six months of grade one.
      The children learn it in stages as the textbooks distinguished between Numbers to 10 and Numbers to 20.
      Count On and Count All are used in Numbers to 10.

      While Count On and Count All are used in Numbers to 10, Make Ten is given emphasis in Numbers to 20.

      Emphasis on Visualization,
      Connections and Number Sense

    • Communication
      Articulating one’s thoughts orally, at first, and in written forms using words, pictures, diagrams and symbols is important.

    • Connections
      Looking for Patterns is introduced through exploration with Shapes. Subsequently, this is done using numbers – in a more abstract context.

    • Visualization
      Visualization is, among other things, the ability to manipulate visual images without the benefit of concrete objects.
      In the Japanese lessons, we saw children engaged in three-dimensional visualization (bean-container task) and two-dimensional visualization (pattern-block task).

    • “an excellent vehicle
      for the development
      and improvement
      of a person’s
      intellectual competence”
      This is the rationale stated in Singapore Mathematics curriculum document.

      Addition
      Theory of Variations

    • 12 + 9
      What are the different ways to add 12 and 9?
    • Students first add by counting all …
    • And then counting on and making ten.
    • For large number addition, students can add the tens and ones separately – regrouping may be necessary.
    • 100 Chart helps counting on for larger numbers.
    • Study the variations over several lessons.
    • “A curriculum as it develops should revisit these basic ideas repeatedly, building upon them until the student has grasped the full formal apparatus that goes with them.”
      Jerome Bruner 1960
      The Process of Education
       
      One feature of Singapore Math is the spiral approach.

      The Process of Education
       
      Students have many opportunities to learn subtraction but each time building upon the strategies learnt previously.

    • Drill-and-practice and thinking are not exclusive.

      Bar Model Method

    • Modeling using real objects, pictures of real objects and more abstract model drawings.
    • Bar models are used to represent quantities – discrete and continuous ones.

    • Observe how this problem is different from the last one even though numbers used are the same.
    • 12
      58 – 12 = 46
      46 ÷ 2 = 23
