Mathematical Competency as a Key
Information-Processing Skills.
Mathematics lessons should not focus
on just computation and rote learning
but to get to “accessing, using,
interpreting and communicating
mathematical ideas” which is the way
OECD defines numeracy in adults.

Action Plan
432 is 400, 30 and what
To use base ten blocks to model
432 is 400 and what
renaming 432 = 3 hundreds + 13 tens + 2 432 is 300 and what
ones and then 3 hundreds + 12 tens + 12
ones
Is the student able to subtract?
300 – 100
120 – 70

Child-like Conventions
• Do renaming
• Carry out the operations
These are done separately.
200 – 18
• Rename 200 as 100 + 90 + 10
• Now subtract 10 and 8 from 90 and 10
2,476 x 3
• Multiply to get 18, 210, 1200 and 6,000
• Now add the partial products
