Making Math an Integral Part of Your Child's Life

  1. 1. Lena Whitlock The Bear Creek School
  2. 2.    Concrete- using actual objects to touch, move and configure Symbolic- correlating a quantity with an actual symbol Abstract- using common algorithms to solve mathematical problems
  3. 3.    Success in mathematics Acute understanding of the basics of mathematics Determines their long-term passion for math
  4. 4.    Ability to understand deeply what the quantities of 1-10 represent. Internalizing the possible arrangements and combinations for each of the quantities 1-10. Written symbols can interfere with the development of these concepts. Concrete/Symbolic
  5. 5.  Patterning awakens children to see the beauty and structure of abstract mathematical concepts. Seeing patterns-linear and geometric  Making patterns with common objects and toys   Sorting & Classifying develops logical thinking and language skills.       Hard verses Soft Sink or Float Shapes Sizes Design Material
  6. 6.  Counting gives the children an opportunity to develop skill with the counting sequence.  Forward, backward, & counting on using concrete objects…       in the car on a walk up/down the stairs setting the table/kitchen objects on clothing toys/ personal trinkets All these activities nurture the brain to prepare them for gaining a strong number concept…
  7. 7. Activities to discover and internalize possible arrangements and combinations for each number. Toothpick pictures o Dry beans/candy o Blocks o Shell pictures Whale game/snack time Pattern block animals o o o
  8. 8. Goal #1 is to identify “3” in many possible combinations immediately. :. … .: Goal #2 is to recognize combinations that make up that number. . + : = :. Goal #3 is to know what amount is missing from a particular number.
  9. 9. gives a child mastery over the foundational principles of math, which breeds in a child a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of success, and then finally, gives a child a love and a passion for mathematics.
