Number Pieces by The Math Learning Center Overview Number Pieces helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computation skills with multi-digit numbers. Students can: Use number pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, regroup, add, subtract, multiply, and divide.

Plane developments of geometric bodies (1): Nets of prisms A right prism is a polyhedron that has two congruents pararel polygonal faces (bases of the prism) and with all remaining faces are rectangles. The main interest of this page is to see how a right prism can be developed into a plane net. There is a platonic solid that is a prism, the cube. This is a cube net:
Fractions by The Math Learning Center How To Use Fractions Working with Fraction Bars and Circles More Toolbar Items Overview Fractions lets students use a bar or circle to represent, compare, and perform operations with fractions with denominators from 1 to 100. Choose the fraction model and number of equal parts. Number Frames Overview Number Frames help students structure numbers to five, ten, twenty, and one hundred. Students use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range. The frames help students see quantities as equal groups of other quantities and in relation to benchmark quantities. This helps primary students move away from one-by-one counting toward more efficient ways of counting and computing. Multi Digit Multiplication Strategies - Mr Elementary Math Look at the problem below and think about how your students would respond to the two questions: What is the value of the 2?Why should we place a 0 in this space? If your students answer the questions by saying, “the 2 is worth 2,” or “I placed the 0 in that area because I was always told to move it down,” consider the idea that the student(s) do not fully understand the concept of multiplying multi digit numbers. According to John Van De Walle, “For multiplication, the ability to break numbers apart in flexible ways is even more important than in addition or subtraction.

The Elementary Math Maniac: A Fun Free Tool for Practicing Counting If you have ever been in a K-2 math class, you know how important counting is. I recently posted some of my favorite you tube videos for practicing counting, my favorite counting books, and have written a seven part series on estimating and counting routines that I use in my classroom. I have also written about interventions I use to help kids learn to count. Today I want to share with you a great tool to use on your computer, projector or SMART board to help your students practice many important counting skills Flip Counter This is a demonstration tool provided by ict games. The life and numbers of Fibonacci Fibonacci is one of the most famous names in mathematics. This would come as a surprise to Leonardo Pisano, the mathematician we now know by that name. And he might have been equally surprised that he has been immortalised in the famous sequence – 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, ... – rather than for what is considered his far greater mathematical achievement – helping to popularise our modern number system in the Latin-speaking world. The Roman Empire left Europe with the Roman numeral system which we still see, amongst other places, in the copyright notices after films and TV programmes (2013 is MMXIII).
Multiples and Factors In this activity, students identify multiples and factors and solve problems that involve finding highest common factors and lowest common multiples. Students will need a good recall of multiplication basic facts in order to be able to do these activities. Activity One and Game Discuss the definitions of multiples and factors (on the student book page) before your students begin this activity. Make sure that they understand that every number is a factor of itself, because if they divide a number by itself, there is no remainder.
Interactive Fraction Wall explore Fractions Percentages and Decimals Fraction walls are a great way to teach about fractions and in particular equivalent fractions. In a fraction wall each row or layer of the wall represents one whole number. The layers are divided into a number of bricks and hence each brick represents a fraction whose denominator is equal to the number of bricks in that layer. Each brick can be turned on or off by clicking it. This wall also allows the display of decimal and percentage values.
