Welcome to Week 4 Topic 4: Numerical Operations Instruction

Date: Nov 1, 2020 12:00 AM

Description

Welcome to Week 4! This week you will be learning how to help your young learners develop meaning about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (numerical operations). You will learn about children’s conceptions of addition and subtraction, and how to teach the four operations through contextual problems.

You will continue to work on designing math instruction with the following elements:

  • Aligned to math content standards
  • Developmentally appropriate
  • Incorporates technology
  • Utilizes strategies that integrate personal, family, and community experiences and cultural norms of students
  • Uses content‐related, age‐appropriate vocabulary
  • Incorporates active inquiry, problem‐solving, collaboration, and supportive interaction in the early childhood classroom.
  • Differentiation based on assessment data.

Young children are naturally curious. They have an innate desire to make sense of their world. Before they ever enter school, children encounter a variety of situations involving quantities and they begin to recognize relationships involving those quantities.

Development of Numerical Operations

When early number and operation concepts are taught well, children move from understanding “10” as ten ones to understanding “10” as one unit of ten. This knowledge can be applied in many mathematical operations, including addition and subtraction.

Select at least three number and operations in base ten standards for the grade level of your field experience classroom. Design three learning centers for a small group of students that will be run by volunteers. In developing your learning centers, consider students’ personal, family, community experiences, and cultural norms, and how those can be integrated into the math centers. Create one learning center that promotes active inquiry, one that includes problem solving, and one that incorporates technology .

For each learning center, write a 150-250 word handout for the volunteer who will be facilitating each center’s activity.

Include the following in each handout:

  • Purpose and learning objective aligned to the state standard
  • List of materials/manipulative to be used and the purpose of each (including technology resources)
  • List of age-appropriate content-related vocabulary to be taught and used throughout the activity
  • Directions for how to run the activity
  • How the activity can be differentiated for students above and below grade level

In a 250-500 word rationale, discuss how your centers are designed to:

  • Integrate the personal, family, community experiences, and cultural norms of students .
  • Provide opportunities for collaboration and supportive interaction in the early childhood classroom.

Support your rationale with 1-2 scholarly resources.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.
