We have begun our Maths unit focused on PLACE VALUE. Our understanding of how numbers are made up of digits that hold a place will be the foundation for all our Number learning this year. We have made a set of arrow cards to help develop and consolidate the concept that each digit in a number holds a place. Using arrow cards is great at helping students to understand expanded notation. This video explains this concept:
I miss calculated my photocopying of the template. If you would like to have a set at home, just ask 🙂
I will be on the watch for learners who are able to explain how to use the cards to make a demonstration video using the “ShowMe” app. I wonder if anyone has used this app before? Stay tuned for more PLACE VALUE ideas but for now…
Some quick practice ideas:
- pick a number and count backwards and forwards from it
- pick a number – what would be ten more, ten less, 100 more, 100 less, etc.
