Each session will include 2-3 activities with virtual worksheets, around a theme related to running a family candy store and using place value for purposes like managing inventory, satisfying customers, decoding secret messages, and handling money. Within each activity, we will start by going over the directions, then learners will have a little time to try on their own, then we will all check in together to discuss strategies and results. Depending on the activity and the learners, numbers...
Learners will translate between ways of representing numbers using place value: standard representation (e.g. 123), expanded notation (e.g. 100 + 20 + 3), expanded verbal form (e.g. one hundred, two tens, and three ones), and physical/simulated representations using blocks or an abacus. Learners will use place value to represent money. Learners will calculate totals. Learners will use other similar level math skills like skip counting and simple bar graph reading. Learners will apply math skills to situational problems.
I have a master's degree in math education for grades 5-12, as well as further graduate coursework in mathematics, and teach developmental, dual credit, and regular math classes for my local junior college.
Learners will have simple prep assignments such as thinking of a name for the store and coloring illustrations on worksheets (to familiarize themselves with the worksheet) before some sessions. They also may sometimes have unfinished problems to complete.
Learners should be prepared with materials they usually use for mathematical problem solving -- examples include counters, pencil and paper, whiteboard and marker, measuring tape to use as a number line, etc. For writing/drawing on worksheets in TeacherMade, a touchscreen device or drawing tablet is a plus, but a keyboard and mouse will work. Optional: As part of the first session, learners will have the opportunity to make a simple abacus. If they wish to make one, they will need three fuzzy wires and 30 beads (10 each of three different colors, or 5 each of 6 different colors to use in pairs)
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The CoolMath4Kids Base Ten Blocks page is a virtual manipulative which learners may use. I will use it to demonstrate some problems. No account is needed and it does not include any web forms where learners can give personal information. TeacherMade is a site designed for school use which allows learners to access and complete worksheets, tutorials, and practice problems. If they wish, such as for added privacy, learners can sign in using a nickname or pseudonym.
