## Math -1.OA.1

addition - maybe helpful to use for unknowns in all positions.

When teaching addition a major part is teaching students the part-part whole method. During my time in my internship I have been able to see that this is sometime's very complicated for the students to visualize. I found this activity and thought it was excellent in order to teach the students this strategy. The tray allows the students to visually see what part-part whole is and how to do it. I also think it is great because the students will be physically counting out the numbers and using manipulatives. I also really like how the trays are labeled. The labels allow the studnets to see what are the parts and what is the whole. In the future when I use this activity I would add the word whole next to the word total so the students do not get confused by different terms. By doing this it will allow the students to learn the word whole also can be referred to as the total. I also like this activity because it can be used with more complicated numbers as well. For example, when the students move to addtion of 2 digit numbers they can still use the tray to show them the part-part whole method. I plan to use this in my future classroom as either a center or a group activity.

## Addition & Subtraction

Little Minds at Work: Addition

When starting to teach students the many strategies that students can use in order to solve addition problems, counting their fingers is one that teachers teach. I saw this acitvity and thought it was great. In my mentors classroom now I observe the students trying to use this strategy, but don't see them using their fingers the correct way to assist them. I think that this is an excellent tool that the students can use in order to use this strategy. This tool can be used in order to teach the students how to use their hands. Once the students learn this they can then move from using this tool to using their own fingers. I love how this tool gives the students a great visual and shows the students how the fingers represent addition. I plan to use this activity in my future classroom as a great visual for addition. Also this activity doesn't just have to be used when teaching the counting on fingers strategy. It can be used when teaching addition in general. The fingers on the hands can simply represent a manipulative to assist the students with addition.

## Differentiating in Math Using Computer Games

Technology can be a key component in teaching Math to young students. See how using computer games and different technology when teaching addition and subtraction can be effective. Covers Common Core State Standards for Math.

A great video (thanks to Heather) that explains how and why technology should and can be used in order to teach addition. In my future classroom if there were enough computer for my students to do this I think using technology to help teach math is an excellent tool. In the video it explains how this teacher in particular really likes the math games that the students play on the computer because they are addition games that test their knowledge and the games give the students immediate feedback. I think this is great because like the teacher stated in the video while those students get feedback from playing the games, he can be meeting with a small group of students who need his support. I also think this is an excellent tool to use when teaching addition because by using technology students are not held down by it. For example, if a student is moving at a faster pace then others in his or her class, they can do harder math games. Using technology allows students to move at their own pace without affecting other stundents. I also thought that in this video another great point was explained when it comes to having students use techonolgy in the math classroom. Just because the students are using the computer does not mean they are not allowed to write the problems down or use other manipulatives in order to solve the problems. The technology should be used as an additional tool in order to teach math. Manipulatives and other strategies should be used along with the technology in order for students to continue practicing these things. Using these online addition games are a great way to keep students interested and always trying to move up or get to the next level. The games are constantly assessing the students on what they understand about the certain topic they are working on. I also love the idea of technology because it can be used for any topic, it does not have to be just used for just addition.

Heather Wehrle's curator insight,

This video provides excellent ideas for how to meet the needs of many different levels of students in one classroom.  The teacher uses technology to meet the varying needs of students in his class.  I agree with his assertion that using computers helps students work at their own pace.  The programs that he states in the video allow students to move forward based on their performance.  The computer can give the students immediate feedback.  I believe that the instant feedback also assists students in self-monitoring.  They are instantly being able to see that they were incorrect in their thinking and can ask their teacher for help adjusting their thought-process to get the math correct.  They can then practice more problems that allow them to expand on their knowledge.

Having online resources that are fun for students also encourages them to practice their math outside of school.  With internet access, students will be able to visit these gaming sites outside of the classroom and build upon their knowledge.  Giving students resources to help them learn in and out of the classroom is important.  The games are engaging and fun, encouraging students to participate in them.  They also show real-world situations in which math would be used which helps students see the uses of math outside of school.
