November 4, 2015, 6:00-8:30 PM, we invite new tutors interested in the Intergenerational Math Program (IMP), which provides intensive support for individual students in grades K-3 struggling with math, to a free training workshop.
Pay At-TEN-tion: Developing Kids’ Foundational Understandings of Our Number System
Just as kids must be agile decoders of words in order to understand increasingly complex texts, they must “break the code” of our number system–based on groups of 10–in order to successfully engage with and understand increasingly complex mathematical ideas. In this workshop, we’ll explore the meaning of our base 10 system, examine the ways in which its structure lends itself to the creation of intuitive computation strategies, and work hands-on with games and activities that support solid understanding of 10 and its power.
