  1. Zeroing in on Number and Operations, Pre-K–K: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions

    When you talk with students about their number sense and computational skills, you're bound to uncover some surprising gaps in their understanding. Knowing how to identify and bridge those gaps is essential for helping students at all levels advance as mathematical thinking. Sharing the insights they've gained through decades of mathematics teaching and research, Linda Dacey and Anne Collins help you focus on what students really need to know and understand at each year level. The modules for grades preschool and Foundation Year are organised into three sections: "Numbers", "Relationships" and "Addition and Subtraction". Each module begins with the identification of its mathematical focus and the potential challenges and misconceptions associated with those ideas.
