Fifth graders explore the concept of number sense and operations as it relates to handling money. In this number sense lesson, 5th graders work with change flashcards to practice giving the correct change in a money transaction. Students then perform more difficult problems relating to money exchange.
In this number sense and operations worksheet, learners solve 15 different types of problems that include reading number lines and solving inequalities. First, they write the scientific notation of various numbers given. Then, pupils write an expression that contains only positive exponents. They also solve an inequality and graph the solutions on a number line.
Learners solve word problems using number sense. They convert fractions to decimals and mixed numbers. Pupils determine if a given fraction is greater or less than another fraction, and order numbers on a number line.
Seventh graders practice the concept of estimation and number sense using Java applet. They demonstrate skills in addition, multiplication and percentage computations. After reviewing a variety of estimation strategies, they play a java-based game using applets on computers.
For this number sense and operations worksheet, 7th graders solve 15 different types of problems that include estimation and expanded notation. First, they simplify various equations by following the order of operations. Then, students write numbers given in expanded notation. They also estimate the difference in problems.
Learners practice number sense strategies. They estimate the sum, product and percent of two, three, and four-digit numbers. Small groups of students use computers to play java-based games.
Second graders explore a multitude of numbers. For this number sense lesson, 2nd graders predict the number of items in a jar as a segway into the story How Much is a Million. Students then create a book pertaining to 100 in the same style as the David Schwartz book.
Second graders complete math activities including patterns, number sense, operations, geometry, and more. In this math lesson plan, 2nd graders play games such as "Eyes have it", and "The shape of things" to learn these concepts.
Students develop number sense through a change in approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. This approach focuses on students and their solution strategies rather than on a
"How can you help students visualize numbers in a way that is compatible with our base-ten number system?" The answer is simple: use ten-frames. Whether they're being used as a part of classroom routines or as instructional tools, this math model offers a wealth of opportunities for developing number sense in young mathematicians. Starting with an overview of how to introduce ten-frames to your class, this teaching guide goes on to provide a list of games that can be supplemented into primary grade math lessons. An excellent resource that allows teachers to provide fun, engaging, and meaningful learning activities for their students.
Have fun while building the number sense of young mathematicians with this list of ten-frame learning games. From developing cardinality and counting skills to learning place value and basic addition strategies, ten-frames are excellent math models that support the growth of young learners. Activities that involve adult-child conversations are also included, which would work best in small group or one-on-one settings. Overall, a great set of activities to include as part of math rotations in the primary grades, or to offer as extension activities for earlier finishers.
Learners estimate the number of apples in a bushel basket and complete center activities. In this estimation and number sense lesson plan based on the theme of Johnny Appleseed, students read about Johnny Appleseed, then estimate and count apples in a basket and solve math problems based on apples. Lesson includes extension activities and center ideas.
Students multiply and divide numbers.  In this estimation games lesson, students compete with each other as they multiply and divide numbers.  They work with number sense and logic.  Students follow predetermined rules and try to become the first one to find answers in a certain range of numbers.
This number sense and operations study guide provides notes and explanations as well as practice problems. In order to practice their math skills, learners write fractions as decimals, identify which number set a number belongs to, take square roots, and change decimals into rational numbers. This could be used as stand-alone worksheet and notes or as a tool to build a test around.
In this number sense and operations worksheet, students solve 15 different problems that include number lines and identifying various types of numbers. First, they solve a given equation and then check their work. Then, students find the greatest common factor and least common multiple of a given number. They also simplify fractions and expressions.
Students define what prime and composite numbers are and how to identify them. Through games, drills, and quizzes, they identify they rules that make prime and composite numbers. Worksheets and forms are included.
In this using a data chart number sense worksheet, 5th graders read an involved word problem at the top of the page. They fill in a data chart to organize the given information. They use rounding to estimate, and write a short answer about how they completed one portion of the chart.
In this number sense worksheet, students find numbers that are between fractions, complete subtraction problems, complete multiplication problems and more. Students complete 6 problems.
Students demonstrate their knowledge of numbers by translating written words into numerals and by working within groups to represent both small and large numbers. Groups can use anything in the classroom to represent their numbers.
Students add and subtract integers. In this algebra lesson, students discuss number sense as they sort numbers in the correct order. They analyze and label numbers differentiating between rational and irrational numbers.
