First graders explore number sense by utilizing cooking equipment in a counting activity. In this estimating lesson plan, 1st graders collaborate in small groups and view a tutorial about counting quickly while looking at a group of objects. Students utilize cookie sheets to complete a class estimation project.
And they're off! Working in pairs, young mathematicians roll dice to see who can fill in their double ten-frames first. When students finally fill in their arrays, they create addition number sentences that represent their rolls, helping to reinforce the underlying math concepts. A simple activity that offers all primary grade students an opportunity to strengthen their number sense. Perform this activity once as a whole class or as part of rotations before offering it as an option for early finishers during math lessons.
Pupils build number sense skills and gain confidence at math by hand. Review how to perform algorithms for the four basic operations. A step-by-step mode emphasizes place value in the base-ten system for each algorithm. Learners identify and review and, through the Missing Pieces game, test how well they understand the concepts.
Fourth through sixth graders incorporate Gandhian principles into Math curriculum. They explore Gandhi's teachings on communal unity and economic equality. This has quite a bit of information about Gandhi and his observations and practices with regard to economic inequality. Real-life applications of percentages, ratios and other math formulas can be derived from this resource.
Increase equity into your curriculum with this academic vocabulary-builder. Develop number sense and meta-cognition by making explicit the purpose, nomenclature, and uses of 10-frames. Using 10-frames, learners can "determine numerosity of a set without counting," so this activity is perfect for even your youngest mathematicians. Link to a set of interactive games using 10-frames is attached, along with other website resources. 
Fifth graders explore multiplication concepts. For this number sense lesson, 5th graders employ problem solving skills to determine the grains of rice in a jar. Students also read One Grain of Rice.
In this number sense learning exercise, students examine a group of numbers from 1 to 7 digits and use these numbers to answer 9 fill in the blank problems regarding number sense and place value.
Seventh graders use a variety of strategies to solve problems with integers, fractions, decimals, and percents. In this number operations lesson, 7th graders discuss sales tax and use grids to represent money and percents. Students shade in the grid to solve percent problems. Students solve sales tax, discounts, and sales price percent problems. Students improve reasoning skills and visualize real world percent problems with the grids.
Third graders practice their number sense by completing math manipulative problems in class. They identify the different place values of a 4 digit number and practice rounding a number to the nearest thousand. Then complete rounding problems on the white board in front of class and on their own.
Learners practice their number sense throughout the day. They practice their use and understanding of numbers in every part of the day.
