Developing Number Sense P-2


Students in the senior primary grades who struggle with Maths often lack number sense. This session will focus on exploring the four crucial aspects of number sense that students in the early years of school need to develop to become competent mathematicians, namely: subitising small quantities, recognising 1and 2 more/less, benchmarking quantities using 5s, 10s and 50s and exploring the part/part/whole relationship between numbers. We will then look at a variety of ways to engage students in learning these skills in a fun and engaging way. Links will be made to the mathematical proficiencies with lots of take-away ideas that can be easily adapted to accommodate different levels of ability. Participants will get a pdf with the games included, ready to use.
