MATHS: (Pre-Early Number) –
A language model for mathematics:
Concrete/Visual: Familiar Objects (teddies, cars..) Verbal: Student Language
Abstraction Concept: What can I count?
determining, matching, sorting, comparing, and ordering attributes. Patterning. Attributes: concept: How to pattern: Skill.
Determine: Use all 5 senses: recognise and name attributes such as colour, shape, size, mass, weight, texture, sound, taste, type of material, function. (How is … the same/different? How does it feel? rough/smooth. (Feely box) (pictures) (words) (sounds) (numerals)
Matching: Sameness/likeness /outline (lego) (big stories) (pattern cards) (flashcards)
Sorting: All red, all triangles: Decide, Do, Describe
Comparing: Long/longer, heavy/heavier, taller/shorter, more/less
Ordering: 3 things familiar first. (Post Office – envelopes/cylinders) (Shop – size cans packets, volume, height, weight). Order events (MTWTFSS) (sleep, breakfast, school..) (Order taking off shoes, first , second..)
Patterning: Create visual, auditory (clap) movement (hop, skip). Language: Over and over, repeat
5 COUNTING PRINCIPLES:
One to One correspondence – 1 number 1 point 1 object.
Stable order 1-9
Cardinal principle (last number tells how many)
Abstraction – What can I count?
Order irrelevance – left to right – right to left.
Counting:Quantity:Position – Subitizing
