Reply To: 2.3 – Number Sense Strategies


What strategies did you use in your classroom? I do have my students memorize their multiplication and division facts. I make it a game. I provide rewards as students memorize their facts. Once they are memorized, I demostrate the importance of having a picture in their head about what it means. I have them explain using examples from their experiences. I want them to make sense of what the facts mean. As they solve problems, I ask them does their answer make sense.

What did you learn? I learned the importance of having fun as students make sense of the numbers they use in class in at home.
