|Seminar Date||Wednesday 25 September|
The workshop will support practitioners to understand how visual tools that use subitising patterns can increase understanding of early number concepts and enhance children’s understanding of strategies for addition and subtraction.
Perhaps one of the greatest predictors of future success within mathematics is the ability of children and young people to make the leap from a reliance on counting by one strategies to non-count by one ‘part-whole’ methods. Structured patterns that represent numbers can be used to develop children’s early understanding of counting, place value, counting on and back and part-whole strategies such as doubles, grouping and partitioning.
Participants will be introduced to the concept of subitising, how they can use visual and concrete tools to develop knowledge of number structure and strategies for addition and subtraction. We will also share the positive impact these concepts are having on children’s understanding, attainment and enjoyment of mathematics.
Through the workshop participants will:
