Grade K-2: Develop Number Sense Understanding and Fluency Through Tasks and Discussions

Primary students need a wide variety of math experiences that help build their understanding of number. During each of these four days participants will actively participate in AIMS math tasks which can then be used to deepen their students' foundation of number sense. For each of the four days there will be new set of AIMS math tasks aligned to the K-2 Primary Number Sense CA CCSSM and each of the four days has a dedicated focus woven throughout.

Session 1 | February 4, 2017
Concrete - Representational- Abstract

Building strong number sense in the primary grades is done while moving students through a progression that starts with them experiencing number sense concretely, moving on to representing their math at a pictorial level, and finally on to the abstract representational level of their grade level standards. During this session participants will experience AIMS math tasks that promote building an essential number sense base for students concretely, representationally, and abstractly.

Session 3 | March 25, 2017
Questioning and Rigor

Teachers greatly influence the climate and conditions within their classrooms and their questioning techniques are a driving force to help achieve high mathematical rigor in classrooms. Rigor is a direct result of active participation in deep mathematical thinking and intensive reasoning by students. Questions and questioning techniques are used to achieve high levels of rigor. Participants attending this workshop will engage in AIMS Primary Number Sense tasks while focusing on questioning to build higher levels of mathematical rigor in the classroom.

Session 2 | February 25, 2017
CCSSM Mathematical Practices

Participants will see this Primary Number Sense Day through the lens of the eight mathematical practices. The mathematical practices describe the attributes of mathematically proficient students. They promote an enduring understanding of mathematics by emphasizing the thinking processes and the habits of mind of mathematicians. During this session participants will actively work through a new set of AIMS Primary Number Sense math tasks and discover how these rich tasks engage learners in the eight mathematical practices.

Session 4 | May 6, 2017
Learning Trajectories

The focus of this session will be learning trajectories. There are three parts of mathematical learning trajectories: a mathematical goal, a developmental path along which children's math knowledge grows to reach that goal, and a set of instructional tasks for each level of children's understanding along that path to help them become proficient at one level before moving on to the next level. Participants will experience a new set of AIMS Primary Number Sense tasks through the lens of these three parts of learning trajectories.
