Math Learning Diﬃcul7es ✭ The math learning diﬃcul7es you think you will encounter this year Discuss: Which learning diﬃcul7es are “High Impact” on future math learning?
Strategies for Math Learning Diﬃcul7es Select instruc7onal strategies that target “High Impact” math learning diﬃcul7es
Pedagogy: C-‐P-‐A Jerome Bruner’s research proved that instruc7onal strategies build understanding for students when they move from… • Concrete (manipula7ves) to • Pictorial (visual models or drawings) to • Abstract representa7ons (numbers, symbols)
Pedagogy: Rela7onal Understanding Richard Skemp’s research proved that for long term learning to occur rela4onal understanding is more successful than instrumental learning. Rela4onal Understanding Instrumental Understanding Conceptual Procedural WHY before HOW How One to One Correspondence Oral Coun7ng Quan77es and Values Wri7ng numbers, Spelling numbers Each piece RELATES to all others Isolated steps or steps without meaning Reading with understanding Phone7c or word calling
Pedagogy: Perceptual Variability Zoltan Diene’s research proved that children gain the most conceptual understanding when they are exposed to a concept through a variety of materials or experiences. Perceptual Variability ? z! ;! p! /! " q!
Reﬂec7ng On Pedagogy Select one strategy for addressing math learning diﬃcul7es. Discuss how it connects to Singapore Math Pedagogy… v Concrete-‐Pictorial-‐Abstract (Bruner) v Rela7onal Understanding (Skemp) v Mul7ple Representa7ons (Dienes)
Beginning Look & Say (Math Talk) Count together One to One Corr. Intermediate Student counts Touching objects Transi7oning from manipula7ves Advanced Group similar objects Grouping for coun7ng Making number bonds Challenge Coun7ng beyond pic If one more frog… If one less frog… Making stories
Place Value Strips 1. Find a partner to compose one of these numbers: 61 42 23 35 14 56 2. With your partner say these about your number: a. ____ tens and ____ ones make _____ b._____ + _____ = _______
Place Value Strips 3. Find another pair to add these numbers mentally: 61 + 35 = 42 + 23 = 56 + 14 = 4. Use the hundreds around the room (and a partner) to make these numbers… 142 361 523 435 614 256
Place Value Strips 5. Come to the front of the room and put the 3-‐digit numbers in order from least to greatest. 6. Find another pair to add these numbers mentally: 435 + 361 = 523 + 142 = 256 + 614 =
