Number Sense: Teaching About Parts and Wholes

Photo uploaded by Sydney Breteler
Teaching students how to estimate, do mental math, and use calculators helps them to better understand how to use numbers. This facilitated online course focuses on how to help adult students answer key questions: When is it necessary to have an exact answer, and when is an estimate sufficient? When calculation is necessary, which tool is appropriate to use? It examines how students develop and apply number sense and provides many teaching strategies and activities that can be used in the classroom right away. Register here. World Education, 2014.
