Developing Number Concepts
Book 3: Place Value, Multiplication
nd Division

by Kathy Richardson

Chapter 1: Place Value
The activities in this chapter help children develop an understanding of place value concepts including forming and counting groups, recognizing patterns in the number system, organizing groups into tens and ones, and adding and subtracting two-digit numbers. The chapter is organized into three sections. Each section deals with important concepts that children must understand if they are to make sense of our number system and learn to add and subtract large numbers in a meaningful way. In each section, teachers will introduce the concept to the children through teacher-directed whole-class activities. The will provide follow-up in the form of independent activities that give children the opportunity to consider and apply these ideas for themselves.

Chapter 2: Beginning Multiplication
The activities in this chapter help children develop an understanding of beginning multiplication as they learn to recognize the process and the language of multiplication. Through the teacher-directed activities, you can help children interpret the language of multiplication, act out multiplication situations, and record the multiplication experiences. The independent activities provide children with the ongoing practice they need to become comfortable interpreting multiplication situations and solving multiplication problems.

Chapter 3: Beginning Division
Through the activities in this chapter, children develop an understanding of beginning division in ways that help them recognize the process and learn the language of division. The teacher-directed activities give children opportunities to interpret this language, act out division situations, and record their division experiences. The independent activities provide children with the ongoing practice they need in order to become comfortable interpreting division and solving division problems.
