Day 1: “Get Secure with Number Sense”
For this full day session, participants will begin their number sense journey with what is number, move on to making 10, moving into addition and subtraction for multi-digit numbers. Without a numeracy rich environment, students are unlikely to thrive, so tips and techniques for developing mathematical routines, management techniques, vocabulary and games in the context of addition and subtraction.
- explore number sense in relation to their job role (what comes before, at benchmark, and next steps).
- experiment with and learn multiple strategies for successfully teaching number, making 10, addition and subtraction facts, and addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers.
- play games that can be geared up and geared down for their job role and setting to support number sense development (focusing on the operations of addition and subtraction).
