Why use number lines when teaching place value? A solid understanding of number sense and place value are absolutely critical as we move our students forward in their mathematical thinking. One area that is often overlooked is the building of understanding of how numbers relate to each other and how they “fit” with other numbers. We often students to numbers in a variety of ways…using manipulatives, using 100’s charts, and so on but forget to help them make the connection to the actual "numbers". This is where number lines have so much power.
For example…students may have a solid understanding of what “10” is and how to model it—but they don’t always realize what “10” means compared to other numbers…that 10 is half of 20…and double 5…and closer to 0 than to 100 and so on! In my attempt to really help my students understand place value AND develop their mathematical practices, I have developed these resources and share them with you now! THIS edition focuses on numbers through ONE THOUSAND.
What is included?
This resource has a number of different elements to help you tackle place value--including 8 pages of information, teaching tips, and photos of the resource in action!
NOTE: This is a challenging resource geared toward helping grade 3-5 teachers "raise the rigor" of their math instruction. Differentiation tips are included!
