### Presentation For Math Curriculum Night 10.22.09

1. 1. First Grade Math<br />Teaching for Understanding<br />
2. 2. Our Math Students Are:<br />Learners who understand concepts of math<br />basic algebra,<br />geometry,<br />problem solving, and<br />reasoning.<br />Learners who are proficient in computation.<br />Learners who can apply the concepts efficiently.<br />
3. 3. Then and Now<br />1) 9 + 0 = <br />2) 5 + 1 = <br />3) 7 + 1 = <br />4) 4+ 3 = <br />I have 7 things on my plate.<br />Some are peas. Some are carrots. <br />How many of each could I have?<br />How many peas? How many carrots?<br />
4. 4. Then<br />1) 9 + 0 = <br />2) 5 + 1 = <br />3) 7 + 1 = <br />4) 4+ 3 = <br />
5. 5. Now<br />I have 7 things on my plate.<br />Some are peas. Some are carrots. <br />How many of each could I have?<br />How many peas? How many carrots?<br />
6. 6. Unit 1 How Many of Each?<br />Addition, subtraction and the number system<br />Introduction to classroom routines and math materials used throughout the year <br />Activities that focus on counting, comparing, and ordering quantities<br />Games that combine two quantities<br />Addition story problems<br />Work to find different 2-addend combinations of the same number<br />
7. 7. Unit 2 Making Shapes and Designing Quilts <br />2-D Geometry<br />Find different combinations of shapes to fill an outlined area<br />Making shapes from smaller shapes<br />Shapes Software<br />Students describe, sort, and classify shapes<br />Combine triangles and squares to make various quilt square designs<br />
8. 8. Unit 3 Solving Story Problems<br />Addition, subtraction and the number system<br />Students continue to develop the strategy of counting and they are introduced to the operation of subtraction.<br />
9. 9. Unit 4 What Would You Rather Be?<br />Data Analysis<br />Students will describe and sort collections of objects according to specific attributes.<br />
10. 10. Unit 5 Fish Lengths and Animal Jumps<br />Measurement<br />Students will develop accurate measurement techniques as they measure the length of various objects using several different units, including inch tiles.<br />
11. 11. Unit 6 Number Games and Crayon Puzzles<br />Addition, subtraction and the number system<br />Students focus on combinations of 10 as they practice routines, play games, and solve story problems.<br />Students develop strategies for combining numbers as they solve problems.<br />Students refine their understanding of the operations of addition and subtraction as they play games and solve story problems.<br />
12. 12. Unit 7 Color, Shape, and Number Patterns<br />Patterns and Functions<br />Color, shape, and number patterns<br />Ideas about patterns, sequence, and functions in early algebraic foundations<br />
13. 13. Unit 8 Twos, Fives and Tens<br />Develop ideas about counting and quantity<br />Composition of numbers <br />Operations of addition and subtraction<br />Revisit number sequence, counting to 100 and beyond<br />
14. 14. Unit 9 Blocks and Boxes<br />2-D and 3-D shapes and relationships between them<br />Observing, describing, comparing, and building 3-D shapes<br />
15. 15. What next…?<br />Tomorrow your child will come home with a math bookmark, questions for helping your child with homework and a letter from our IBJ math consultant.<br />A letter about Student Math Handbooks will come home with a portion to sign and return.<br />The Student Math Handbooks will come home for you to use at home when doing math homework.<br />Thanks for coming!<br />
