Teaching Experience for Numeracy

A few years ago I did a Math recovery course and learned how to assess and help children develop a strong number sense. That led me to do my own inquiry into how children develop number sense. I wanted to find out how young children gain an understanding of basic numerical concepts and an intuitive ‘feel’ for numbers. I have had experience teaching 'number sense' with 5 and 6 year olds. They learned to use strategies through number talks, problem solving experiences, counting quantities and estimation games, I can teach children to explain their thinking, show their understanding of how numbers represent quantities and also how those quantities relate to each other. Research shows students without a strong number sense do not estimate quantities appropriately and cannot subitise (immediately know the quantities up to three or four at a glance) Children who lack number sense usually lack confidence using basic mathematical procedures. I have had experience using the IBPYP curriculum as well as the Australian ACARA curriculum. I have also led teacher workshops in Literacy, Mathematics and Symbolic learning in the Early Years.
