Rotterdam Day 2

1. 1. Singapore Math in Rotterdam 2<br />Opleiding Singapore rekenspecialist<br />Review of Day 1<br />What are some features of Singapore Math and its theoretical underpinnings.<br />On Day 2, we look at the focus on visualization and the model method.<br />

7. 7. ZoltanDienes<br />The three lessons include mathematical variations within the same grade. <br />This is referred to as a spiral approach.<br />
8. 8. It is likely that a teacher will start this unit using the sticks. This is followed by the use of base ten blocks. Finally, non-proportionate materials such as coins are used. In each of these lessons, the teacher is likely to introduce the following five notations in turn – place value chart, expanded notation, number in numerals, number in words and the tens and ones notation.<br />The question is what is an appropriate sequence? Should the place value chart be used first? Or the expanded notation? Give your reasons.<br />Place Value Chart<br />Expanded Notation<br />Words<br />Numerals<br />Tens and Ones Notation<br />Primary Mathematics<br />
9. 9. ZoltanDienes<br />This lesson include perceptual variations. This is Dienes’ idea of multiple embodiment. The mathematical concept is constant while the materials used to embody it are varied.<br />
10. 10. Jerome Bruner<br />Bruner advised teachers to use the CPA Approach in teaching mathematics.<br />

12. 12. Richard Skemp<br />Skemp distinguished between instrumental understanding from relational understanding to encourage teachers to teach for conceptual understanding.<br />

32. 32. John had 1.5 m of copper wire. He cut some of the wire to bend into the shape shown in the figure below. In the figure, there are 6 equilateral triangles and the length of XY is 19 cm. How much of the copper wire was left?<br /> <br />19 cm x 5 = 95 cm<br />150 cm – 95 cm = 105 cm<br />
33. 33. There was an interesting discussion on this problem. There was an explanation that a + b + c = 19 cm. Then there was an assumption that a : b : c = 4 : 2 : 1 which was met with rebuttals such as there is no need to know a : b : c as well as the point that a : b : c can be determined by measuring or folding. <br /> <br />

44. 44. The class decided that this was impossible. The teacher asked the class to change this to another number to make the situation possible. We discussed when it is 3, 4 and 5 times.<br />A student gave an incorrect solution for the second part. The teacher asked students to write a question for which this would be a correct solution.<br />Materials developed by Poon Yain Ping <br />
45. 45. Summary<br />We discussed how to use students’ responses to make the lesson focus on depth. We also saw how a problem can be modified to challenge learners.<br />
