Number Sense: Teaching About Parts and Wholes
Course Dates: (facilitated: Oct 1, 2012 - November 9, 2012)
Teaching students how to estimate, do mental math, and use calculators will help them to better understand how to use numbers. This course focuses on how to help adult students answer key questions: When is it necessary to have an exact answer, and when is an estimate sufficient? When calculation is necessary, which tool is appropriate to use? This course examines how students develop and apply number sense and provides lots of teaching strategies and activities that you can use right away.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- help students choose the right computation tool (estimation, mental math, calculator, paper and pencil) for a problem
- compare and contrast two ways to help students understand fractions and their equivalents
- design math activities that use estimation, mental math, and reasonableness strategies.
