Help your students (AND THEIR PARENTS!) understand how to use new math strategies.
The way we teach math today focuses on helping children build their base 10 understanding.
We know now that children should not be taught "short cuts" (algorithms) until they have a deep understanding of concepts.
The 4 methods of addition instruction in Book 1 of the "My Math Mentor" series, focuses on:
The Illustration Method
Base 10 Representation
Partial Sums Method
Open Number Line Method
Beginning in Kindergarten, these strategies are designed to move children from the CONCRETE (using objects to add and subtract), to the PICTORIAL (using drawings to add and subtract) and finally to the ABSTRACT/SYMBOLIC (using numbers and symbols to add and subtract).
