Presentation For Math Curriculum Night 10.22.09Presentation Transcript
First Grade Math Teaching for Understanding
Our Math Students Are: Learners who understand concepts of math basic algebra, geometry, problem solving, and reasoning. Learners who are proficient in computation. Learners who can apply the concepts efficiently.
Then and Now 1) 9 + 0 = 2) 5 + 1 = 3) 7 + 1 = 4) 4+ 3 = I have 7 things on my plate. Some are peas. Some are carrots. How many of each could I have? How many peas? How many carrots?

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