Numeracy 2014

1. 1. Have developed an understanding of how Mathematics is taught today.
2. 2. MAJOR CHANGES FROM WHEN YOU WERE AT SCHOOL –Multi level to meet children’s needs –Small group teaching –Children encouraged to use equipment including fingers
3. 3. WHAT IS NUMERACY? Number Knowledge Mental Strategies
4. 4. THE TOOL KIT
5. 5. WHAT ARE THE NUMERACY STAGES? WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?
6. 6. How would you solve a problem? Let’s solve a problem to find out what stage we are working at.
7. 7. 8 + 7 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…..15 The student counts all by using materials or by imaging. Stage 2-3 8, 9, 10, 11, 12…15 The student counts on from 8 Stage 4 7 + 7 = 14 so 8 + 7 = 15 or 8 + 8 = 16 so 8 + 7 = 15 or 8 + 7 = 8 + 2 + 5 so 15 The student uses additive strategies Stage 5 15 The student knows it as a basic fact. Stage 5
8. 8. 73-29 = There are 73 cars in the car-park building. 29 cars leave. How many are in the building now? The student makes equal adjustments by adding 1 to both numbers 74 - 30 = 44 The student uses rounding and compensating. 73 - 30 = 43 + 1 = 44 The student uses the concept of Reversibility i.e adding up from 29. 29 + ? = 73. 29 + 1= 30+40= 70+3=73 So 1+40+3 = 44 The student uses place value partitioning. 73-20= 53-3= 50-6= 44
9. 9. What can you do at home? You can support your child’s learning in mathematics by: being positive and enthusiastic about mathematics yourself. discussing mathematical experiences with your family. not feeling you have to know everything. Be a learner too. Get your child to show you how. They will love having you ask and will learn from explaining. Car games / supermarket visits / reading numbers(car license plates), in the garden, while cooking. Interactive games on websites.

11. 11. A PEEP INTO A TYPICAL CLASSROOM AND THE EQUIPMENT AND GAMES CHILDREN ARE ENGAGED IN TO PROMOTE PROBLEM SOLVING.
