Workshop description

Do your students have a deep understanding of whole numbers (K-6) and decimal numbers (Yrs 4-6)? Are they part-part-whole thinkers or do they just move digits from column to column? When students see the ten-ness structure, this understanding can then be applied to more complex thinking in later grades such as ratio and proportional reasoning.

The presenter, Anita Chin will help you find a balance between concrete materials, visual models and formal written recordings by using basic concrete materials that you can pick up and run with. You will experience and understand how whole-class differentiated instruction is doable.

This hands-on workshop will empower you with strategies to:

  • simplify and streamline your equipment and other teaching tools
  • create good worksheets that can be adapted to all grade levels
  • use the one resource for whole-class differentiated instruction.

Anita will demonstrate how key concrete materials can be easily and effectively used in the Yrs 3-6 classroom including: place value arrows, place value dice, base-10 materials.

Participants will engage with a developmental sequence of classroom-ready whole-class tasks which make the maths visible. Fun will be had with the following activities:

  • card matching activity ‘Representations’
  • pencil and paper activity sheet ‘Make 100, 1000, 10, 1’
  • the use of a range of hundreds charts (1 to 100, 0.1 to 10, 0.01 to 1, -49 to 50) with whiteboard insert sleeves, 'Missing Numbers' worksheets, ‘Hundreds Chart Jigsaws’, and ‘Window Spin’.

Blackline masters and an e-folder of resources provided.


What to bring

  • a hard copy of the NSW Mathematics K-6 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum (the 'orange book')
  • post-it notes
  • yellow highlighter
  • your 6-digit NESA number.
