Overview:

Number sense and place value are the foundations of Singapore’s approach to teaching mathematics – the approach that is responsible for Singapore’s rise to the top of the world in international tests of students’ achievement in mathematics.  Participants of this full-2day workshop will learn the instructional strategies and theory needed to develop their students’ skills and understanding to levels they never thought possible.

Both days will  focus on topics relevant to K-5 teachers such as addition and subtraction, number bonds, place value concept building, multiplication, division, place value strategies and bar modeling. Truly effective professional development is content-focused and begins with teachers learning as students. The trainer will guide teachers through demonstration lessons and follow with a thorough analysis of the strategies and theories that involved. Implicit in all of our workshops is teaching with problem-solving, the C-P-A approach, journal writing, and collaboration.

Workshop Topics:

  • Strategies for building number sense concepts such as conservation and subitization*
  • Mathematical reasoning and sense building with whole numbers
  • Creating a culture of effective collaboration in the classroom
  • Teaching with number bonds to lay the foundation of place value*
  • Key place value understandings and strategies to develop them
  • Addition and subtraction of both small and large numbers*
  • Teaching Multiplication and division of whole numbers**
  • A problem-solving and reasoning approach to developing math fact fluency without rote memorization
  • Consolidating learning and deepening the understanding of whole numbers through problem-solving
  • Solving multiplication and division word problems with bar models**
