Need a school Numeracy Plan? Call Geri

Recall without Reasoning  =  Numeracy Gap

If you want your students to learn, remember and be able to apply basic facts to solve problems you need to teach concepts in a way that maximizes practice affect.  All practice is not equal. Spatializing the practice with a B.E.R.C.S. approach makes the difference.  The study of concepts and the practice of basic skills must be connected through reasoning. NUMBER IN NUMBER, RELATIONSHIPS MATTER and students who are taught to reason,  talk, & problem solve as they learn persevere and excel. 

 

Need to see concept based teaching in action? Call Geri

Need to see spatial reasoning embedded into the teaching of BASIC FACTS? Call Geri

In a Thinking 101 Classroom, the teacher knows what “math to teach” , how to teach it from reasoning to recall, & how to assess both reasoning & recall skills. 

In a thinking classroom, students know what math they are learning, why they are learning it and how to practice to develop both reasoning & recall skills.

Geri , Your overview materials for the Power of Area models are awesome –           

And so perfect for setting up the work for Junior- Senior High. Incredible alignment. This is all streamlined so beautifully. Love the flexible thinking this encourages – demands! – and the common sense approaches it develops. James Tanton, PhD
