This set of 12 posters are taken from our Visual Calculation Policy – an extensive set of posters that show the progression of strategies in jottings, written and mental strategies across the primary age range. It also includes posters that explore the CPA approach in teaching Calculation. For more details check out: numberfun.com.
For each operation there are three essential slides:
1: Equation Vocabulary
2: Additional Vocabulary
3: Underlying Structures
Ideas for Use:
1) Display – these posters are specifically designed to be placed upon a mathematics display to help remind both the children and adults in the classroom of this viral info.
2) Tell Me a Story – with reference to the underlying structures (or models) behind each operation – can children create stories that apply to each structure? (This activity is called Problem Posing)
3) Consistent Use – Regularly draw your children’s attention to the posters, reminding them of the vocabulary and structures. Ensure as a teacher you use the vocabulary consistently and accurately.
