Organizing Place Value Tools in a Developmental Progression

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Organizing Place Value Tools

Presented by Dr. Sara Delano Moore, Educational Consultant at SDM Learning
Sponsored by Conceptua Math



If you attend the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the webinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Building Understanding in Mathematics community and go to the Webinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.

This webinar is part one of a three-part series entitled Extending Place Value Understanding from Smaller to Larger Numbers. The series will cover research-informed strategies for supporting upper elementary students as they extend their thinking from numbers up to 1000 (which can be more easily modeled) to larger numbers, which are less readily modeled and more abstract to understand.

In this presentation, Dr. Sara Delano Moore will explore a variety of concrete virtual models for place value, including both concrete and ten frames, base ten blocks, and number lines. Join us to learn about the attributes of the models and their sequence in a developmental progression. There will be time to ask Sara your questions during this live, interactive session.

Math educators, especially those teaching grades three through five, are invited to this webinar as well as math coordinators, math instructional leaders, math supervisors, and elementary school principals.
