Lesson 4

We started with Quiz 2 on meaning of division of fractions - followed by a discussion of the meanings of operations.

Addition & Subtraction
1. Part-Whole Model
2. Change Model
3. Comparison Model

1. Sharing
2. Grouping

How about multiplication?

We focus on some early number concepts - place value, for example. We played some games and I demonstrated some maths tricks. For example, try to goggle fido dido puzzle. We played that today.

We discussed Zoltan Dienes' idea of variation.

We ended the class with a children's literature session where I read a book to teach measurements - How Big Is A Foot?

The class were asked to blog about their views on how to sequence the teaching of place value. I am writing a separate blog for this.
