Number Sense Routines: Powerhouse Tools for Building Number Sense
In this workshop, Meredith will share ideas about how to boost your students’ number sense through a set of number sense routines. Intended for just 5-20 minutes of your day, number sense routines are fun and engaging ways for students to make sense of mathematics, practice communicating mathematical ideas, develop efficiency in computation, and engage in reasoning, justifying, and making mathematical connections. They are your best tools for helping students build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding, and your students will love them. Come learn how to easily incorporate number sense routines into your daily routine and see the results as your students strengthen their accuracy, flexibility, and efficiency.
