Using Mathematical Milestones in Developing a Whole School Approach to Basic Number Facts @ AISWA
Fluency is one of the Four Proficiency Strands of the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. In this session, a comprehensive set of Milestones for developing Fluency in the Basic Number Facts will be provided. Participants will be exposed to the TPA (Teach Practise Apply) sequence for developing basic number fact knowledge. The role of Understanding (another of the Proficiency Strands) will be explored as part of the ‘Teaching’ phase. Games and simple short activities will be highlighted in the ‘Practise’ phase and the Problem Solving and Reasoning proficiencies will be explored in the ‘Apply’ part of the sequence. Participants will be provided with assessment options for determining whether students reach specific Milestones.
Ideal for school leaders, numeracy leaders and teachers in Years 1 – 4, where the basic facts are learned or for teachers of older students struggling to learn the basic number facts.
