Learners will gain strategies for solving fun (and sometimes crazy!) word problems. The intent of this class is to give learners a variety of tools and the practice they need to approach word problems and understand when and how to apply addition and subtraction within 100. Printable activities will be available after the first class meeting and can be downloaded and printed prior to the following class. This class is appropriate for advanced young learners (ages 6-7) and learners (2nd grade)...
This class meets the NCTM common core standard for Mathematics Grade 2: Students represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction. Specifically, students will be able to: • Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions • Use drawings and equations with a symbol to solve problems with an unknown number • Write their own word problems to better understand mathematical operations as they relate to real world scenarios
I’m so excited to offer this class as both a teacher who is a math nut and as a mom with kids who love math! I am a certified teacher, and in addition to teaching education courses for the local university, I currently teach math to small groups in my 2nd grader’s classroom and accelerated math to a small group in my 4th grader’s classroom. Through my small group teaching experiences and background as a professional educator, I have learned so many great strategies for making early math fun and interactive. I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm and experience with you!
Learners will be given an activity sheet after each class meeting to extend learning and to give them an opportunity to practice solving fun word problems.
Printable handouts will be available after the first class meeting.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The teacher will observe learner participation during class and review individual learner activity sheets to provide additional instruction as needed.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
