- Understand the effects of adding and subtracting whole numbers.
- Understand various meanings of addition and subtraction of whole numbers and the relationship between the two operations.
- Develop and use strategies for whole-number computations, with a focus on addition and subtraction.
- Develop fluency with basic number combinations for addition and subtraction.
- Numbers can be added in any way and we will still come up with the same answer
- Numbers cannot be subtracted in the same ways that addition can because then we will come up with a negative answer (explain that they do not need to know what negative is right now)
Established Objective(s): Students will be able to use a math strategy (i.e. the bunny …show more content…
Now, Peter the Rabbit has a special way of learning addition and subtraction problems and he calls it the bunny hop.”
Addition: Display a large number line and then demonstrate with Peter Rabbit on how a hop of 7 is taken on the number line. Encourage students to count aloud as the hop is made. Then make a hop of 3 starting at the place the Peter Rabbit landed. Encourage them to write the problem 7 + 3 = 10, or describe the problem this way: “If you take a hop of 7 spaces and then a hop of 3 spaces, you land on 10.”
Subtraction: Display a large number line and then demonstrate with Peter Rabbit on how a hop of 10 is taken and display the subtraction problem, 10 – 7 = ___. Encourage students to count aloud as each backward hop is made. Describe the problem this way “If you start at 10 and take 7 backward hops, you land on 3.”
Addition: Ask the students to take turns moving Peter Rabbit on the number line to find the sum shown in the example problems and record the hops in equation form, 7 + 3 = 10 or describe the problem this way: “If you take a hop of 7 spaces and then a hop of 3 spaces, you land on 10.” Encourage the students to predict the sums and to verify their predictions by moving a counter on the number

If not correct, ask student guiding questions to help them find the correct answer. Provide the feedback necessary to help them solve the division problem, some students don’t subtract correctly, others multiply incorrectly, or divide incorrectly. Catch their error to better assist them. Step 3: Model on Elmo • After students, have finished solving the first division problem, solve the
Then I went to the main lesson which I did on the white board and I started with simple two step problems and got up to the four step problems with the parentheses so they could see me do it. After I was done, I had each student come up a couple of time to check their understanding of it, to me they seem to get it really well. I sent them home with homework to post assess them on the following Wednesday when I came back, I was surprised when they turned in the homework on how well they
In Math, Scott is working on developing a strategy to help him solve one-digit and two-digit multiplication problems. He has been exposed to the Bow-Tie method for two-digit, grouping and the array strategy for one-digit multiplication. He is doing very well at understanding and using the method to assist him in solving the multiplication problems. There have been improvements in his assessments by creating a strategy that works for him. After Scott has used the strategy over time, he will develop automaticity for solving the multiplication.
Overall, the fundamental approaches shown in the video can provide educators with valuable data which can guide instructional procedures in the classroom. One approach shown in the video is station teaching. In this strategy students are divided into small groups and placed into stations. By using groups teachers can focus on different aspects of the curriculum, which builds upon previously learned material. In addition, station teaching breaks the traditional cycle of large group instruction and allows students to receive individualized attention.
This quote proves the interest the children having in learning about these things. Rarely do fourth graders happily discuss arithmetic to any extent. Miss Ferenczi is a positive influence by teaching them to be excited about learning through the stories she tells them.
Second, I would introduce a problem that the student might find interesting and excite their interest for the challenge of solving a long division problem. Third, I would model how to work through some long division problems with the use of material scaffolding in the form of the mnemonic device and guided examples mentioned in answer 4-B. Fourth, I would use the mnemonic device as a handout, and poster on a wall, to let practice my student practice long division problems with the mnemonic device as a reminder tool. The mnemonic device could be “Dad, Mom, Sister, and Brother,” which would stand for “Divide, Multiply, Subtract, and Bring Down.” I would also model and practice the guided examples with the student on a handout. Fifth, I would begin task scaffolding by walking through each step in solving long division using the mnemonic device provided above along with the guided examples.
Quadratic Formula Introduced: The formula will be written on the board and the teacher will model how to solve a quadratic equation using the formula. The teacher will “think aloud” to find the constants for A, B, and C. Model substituting A, B and C into the quadratic formula to solve. Use a less complex problem. Have a visual of what the solution refers to (a parabola with the
Often enough teachers come into the education field not knowing that what they teach will affect the students in the future. This article is about how these thirteen rules are taught as ‘tricks’ to make math easier for the students in elementary school. What teachers do not remember is these the ‘tricks’ will soon confuse the students as they expand their knowledge. These ‘tricks’ confuse the students because they expire without the students knowing. Not only does the article informs about the rules that expire, but also the mathematical language that soon expire.
Once was a boy, Gary. He recently came back from math class, where he won a contest over several Algebra questions, which no kids in his class, including him, had been taught yet. In his class, the students are now starting to be taught how to multiply and divide the first ten numbers, which is a huge step in the math world, for beginners. Gary was excelling in multiplying and doing well in dividing. Before they began the contest, Gary realized only fifteen other kids thought they were able to handle Algebra.
My lessons concentrate on numeracy in mathematics, especially numbers and mathematics in simple finance, for instance, allowance management, creating a shopping list with a restriction of the allowance and calculating the benefits to buy a discount sale item. The three lessons focus on the skill to understand and work with numbers in finance. This will lead students numerate and become a smart consumer. Most of students in grade 6 receive allowances which they use for various reasons: hanging out with friends, snacks and anything they want and need. They are becoming or will become an independent consumer in a few years, who does not rely on their parents for their allowance management.
Meaning of negative numbers - Visual Materials: Show a YouTube video and use axis/arrow schematic to illustrate the concept - Practice: Solving a couple of example by the teacher, and then, practicing the work sheet by the students language objective: As I mentioned, the steps have to be written in a pretty simple language
The last thing that I learned from this chapter is all of the different ways you can teach fractions. This chapter talked about area models, length models, and set models and how they can help your student learn fractions. Area models help your students see the area covered (the fraction) as it relates to the whole unit. Length models help your students see the location of a point in relation to 0. Last but not least, set models help your students see the objects in a subset as it relates to the defined whole.
Correct number-candy. This game is for kids who are learning addition, subtraction and multiplication. Since children are more attracted to candies and toffees, buy some extra for the sake of good mathematical skills. Also don’t forget to buy bite-size chocolates. Tell your kid that on every correct answer, he will get a candy.
