Limited Capacity seats available

This session explores the informal strategies that young children use to solve simple computation problems involving addition and subtraction. The information presented is founded on pedagogical principals of Cognitively Guided Instruction, which is a research-based approach for supporting and developing children's efficient and robust strategies for solving problems that involve basic computation. Participants will review video vignettes that showcase children solving a variety of problem structures using a range of problem solving strategies, which begins with direct modeling and then progresses to more efficient mental counting strategies and eventual number fact retrieval. Participants will then discuss the requisite thinking and skill attainment the child used to solve the story problem presented in the video. The presenter will also review instructional strategies (e.g., games) for helping children attain numerical efficiency and problem solving acuity.
