1. Understanding Addition and Subtraction of Whole and Decimal Numbers Number Sense and Numeration, Grades 4 to 6 (with reference to Volumes 2 and 6) The Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat Professional Learning Series

2. Session A – Activating Prior Knowledge • Aims of Numeracy Professional Learning • About Problem Solving • Learning Goals of the Module • Warm Up – What Ways Do We Use Math? • Activating Mathematical Knowledge – Problem #1 • Reflect and Connect

3. Aims of Numeracy Professional Learning • Promote the belief that all students have learned some mathematics through their lived experiences in the world and that the math classroom is one where students bring that thinking to their work. • Build teachers’ expertise at setting classroom conditions where students can move from their informal math understandings to generalizations and formal representations of their mathematical thinking. • Assist educators working with teachers of students in the junior division to implement student-focused instructional methods to improve student achievement – as referenced in the Number Sense and Numeration, Grades 4 to 6.

4. Aims continued • Have teachers experience mathematical problem solving as a model of what effective math instruction entails by: • collectively solving problems relevant to students’ lives that reflect the expectations in the Ontario mathematics curriculum; • viewing and discussing the thinking and strategies in the solutions; • sorting and classifying the responses to a problem to provide a visual image of the range of experience and understanding of the mathematics; and • analysing the visual continuum of thinking to determine starting points for instruction.

5. Learning Goals of the Module During these session, participants will: • develop an understanding of the conceptual models of whole and decimal numbers; • explore, through problem solving, conceptual and algorithmic models of whole and decimal number addition and subtraction; • analyse and discuss the role of student-generated strategies and standard algorithms in the teaching of addition and subtraction with whole and decimal numbers; and • Identify, reflect, and connect strategies that contribute to an effective mathematics classroom.
