Mathematical Modelling These virtual math manipulatives support teachers to model abstract mathematical concepts for deeper student comprehension. Similar to manipulatives that have been used for decades by teachers in classrooms, these online math manipulatives for elementary school classrooms offer numerous advantages while retaining the benefits of the classic manipulatives.

Scavenger Hunts to Equip Students for Remote Learning As each new school year begins, teachers consider how to help students build confidence with the tools and manipulatives they will use throughout the year. In Work Places, for example, we allow students to explore materials like Unifix cubes, pattern blocks, and dominoes before they use them in actual gameplay. In this relaxed setting, students generate interest and excitement in classroom resources while they investigate materials and establish norms for their use and care. This year, as many teachers get ready for remote—or socially distant—learning, they may be asking how to best prepare students to use digital, rather than physical, tools. To support this process, MLC has designed a set of digital scavenger hunts to provide a guided discovery experience with the tools that students will likely use in a remote setting.

Eratosthenes Experiment 2019 Eratosthenes was a talented mathematician and geographer as well as an astronomer. He made several other important contributions to science. Eratosthenes devised a system of latitude and longitude, and a calendar that included leap years. He invented the armillary sphere, a mechanical device used by early astronomers to demonstrate and predict the apparent motions of the stars in the sky. He also compiled a star catalog that included 675 stars. Technology and the CRA Sequence of Instruction - Math Coach's Corner I got an email from a reader last week asking about the impact of technology on the CRA sequence of instruction, so I thought I’d blog about it. First, let me remind you that CRA stands for concrete, representational, and abstract. From Van de Walle (pg 99): “…this model reflects a sequence that moves from an instructional focus on concrete representations (manipulative materials) and models to semi-concrete representations (drawings or pictures) and images to abstraction (using only numerals or mentally solving problems).”

Learning to Add and Subtract {FREE printable} Just recently, I attended a training session called Reading in Math. It was an interesting session that really stretched my thoughts about reading. While the session was designed for upper elementary, middle, and high school, I had a lot of take-aways for my own kiddos, especially when it came to word problems and math vocabulary. While my Kindergartner has the basics of how to add and subtract, I wanted to stretch him a bit and bring in some of that math vocabulary.
