Teacher collaboration, professional communities improve many elementary school students' math scores

Teacher collaboration, professional communities improve many elementary school students' math scores | Teaching Math | Scoop.it
Many elementary students' math performance improves when their teachers collaborate, work in professional learning communities or do both, yet most students don't spend all of their elementary school years in these settings, a new study shows.

Terry Johnson's insight:

Studying how to build collaborative and professional learning communities is not just going to enhance math scores, but scores in all subject areas where many minds come together to solve problems.

What teacher collaboration and professional learning communities build is a developmental approach to student achievement and growth. It shifts the context for everyone.

Achieving the Early Learning Goals for Maths using 8 Great iPad Apps

Achieving the Early Learning Goals for Maths using 8 Great iPad Apps | Teaching Math | Scoop.it

"For this post, I will focus on early learning goals for maths and numbers in the UK Primary National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and the Early Years Foundation Stage for age 5 and under. If you read the framework documentation, you will find the early learning goals for maths and numbers are:

 

"Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.”

 

If I may add one goal to the ones I already stated, it’s the ability to write numbers and speak the words fluently."

Learn zillion does a great job modeling how to do particular math problems.  The example shown here described how to multiply fractions.
