Gr. 1-2: Building a Strong Base for Addition and Subtraction

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites

Description

Have you ever been perplexed at how easily and quickly students appear to backslide and forget basic math facts, even after they have shown mastery on timed tests? Why do many continue to use their fingers and counting strategies to add and subtract well into second grade?  This workshop is designed to address and “break” your students’ habits of over-relying on counting strategies to add and subtract to 20.  Mirroring  the scope and sequence of instruction used in Singapore, we will start with a close look at how using ten frames to visualize numbers within 10 and 20 builds mental math muscle, so that decomposing and composing numbers to find sums and differences is (finally!) released from dependence on counting by ones. How is this possible? You will learn a system of classifying and a method of teaching addition and subtraction facts that is based on the structure of base ten numbers.

 

Our goal is for you to leave satisfied that you have learned how to change your instruction by implementing the East West Math Method© of Addition and Subtraction to 10 and to 20, designed specifically to build mental math fluency.  Join us to learn how to use your own set of East West Mastery Card© decks, after gaining enough knowledge and practice to teach and assess fluency with the basic facts to 10 and 20.

 

Note: You will receive decks of the following cards as part of your registration, “Visualizing to 20 Mastery Cards”©, “Addition to 10 Mastery Cards”© “Subtraction to 10 Mastery Cards”© , “Addition to 20 Mastery Cards”©, and “Subtraction to 20 Mastery Cards”©

Cancellation & Refund Policy:

Why Singapore Math Online PD?

The benefits of online PD include 24/7 convenience, access to high quality Singapore Math resources, cost and time savings. In addition, the online participants will benefit from receiving multiple opportunities to clarify mathematical concepts, help develop new ways of thinking about mathematical instruction, deepen understanding of children's cognitive processes and develop pedagogical content knowledge.

Overall, our online PD courses and seminars offer an alternative to onsite professional development to educators for whom Singapore Math onsite learning may be unavailable or too costly.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites

Description

This mathematically content-focused and rigorous course will provide an introduction to the Bar Modeling method for solving word problems in grades 2, 3, 4 and 5. Bar Modeling is also known as the Singapore Math model method. The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M) and New York State Learning Standards (NYSLS) identify Bar Models as Tape Diagrams and Strip Diagrams. Topics covered include the methodology and rationale for using Bar Models to solve a variety of word problems in mathematics. Participants will be introduced to the part-whole and comparison models for solving problems involving the four operations with whole numbers and use bar modeling heuristic to solve one and two-step word problems. Teachers will learn practical strategies of helping their students use the bar modeling techniques effectively. Differentiating instruction to meet the diverse needs of all learners will be explored. This workshop is aligned to all Singapore-based programs in mathematics that include Primary Mathematics, Math in Focus, Dimensions Math, and Maths No Prolem. This workshop is aligned with the CCSS-M and NYSLS in the domains of Operations and Algebraic Thinking in Grades 2-5.

Activities & Structure

This course is organized into six units of instruction and each unit lasts one week.  East West Math's instructional designers and subject matter experts used the latest technologies, such as computer-mediated communication and Web 2.0 interactive tools, to recreate meaningful, trainer led learning experiences online that promote deep learning and improve the instructional quality of professional development in K-5 mathematics. Throughout each one week course unit, our trainers will provide feedback to all participants on every assignment they complete, in addition to fielding questions and moderating group communications designed to engage teachers in the learning process

Cancellation & Refund Policy:

This workshop requires minimum enrollment of 10 participants. East West Math reserves the right to cancel the course in the event of insufficient enrollment. In such event prospective participants will be notified of cancellation as soon as possible.

Description

Proud parents and grandparents often ask their young children “How high can you count?” and children respond proudly by counting to “prove” how smart or grown-up they are!  Yet, as teachers of young preK and K students, we know that repeating the counting sequence is not enough to build a strong number sense.  This workshop is designed to look more closely at early primary years’ learning about numbers and relationships among numbers, underscoring how to build number sense in base ten.  This workshop mirrors the scope and sequence of instruction used in Singapore texts, where visualizing, decomposing/composing, and comparing numbers to 5, 10, and 20 is strategically and incrementally built.  

We will begin by looking closely at early childhood math education findings and east Asian teaching methods and tools. Our goal is for you to leave satisfied that you have learned exciting ways to augment your PreK and K, or instruction with new ideas and tools for instruction, including a system you can immediately begin using … with East West Math’s “Visualizing to 20 Mastery Cards.”

Cancellation & Refund Policy:

This workshop requires a minimum enrollment of 7 participants. East West Math reserves the right to cancel the course in the event of insufficient enrollment. In such event prospective participants will be notified of cancellation as soon as possible.

100% of a paid registration fee will be refunded if an educator cannot participate and notifies us at least 14 days before the day of the course. 50% of the paid registration fee will be refunded if an educator cannot participate and notifies us between 7 and 14 days before a day of the course. No refunds will be issued if an educator cannot participate and notifies us less than 7 days prior to a day of the course. In the event of a medical emergency, 100% of the paid registration fee will be refunded, provided a participant forwards proper documentation.
