I watched the duplicator video and printed off the prompt.. I hope to play with it tomorrow.
I have been playing around with Splat a lot recently. Kids love #MathSplat
Excited for Splat in motion!
A2 Number sense is understanding relationships between numbers/ideas. Number sense comes from lots of experiences where you are making sense of patterns, relationships. #eduAR
A2 Number sense is understanding the relationships between and within numbers and being able to apply those understandings flexibly to solve problems #EduAR
So much of number sense has to do with an understanding that numbers can be used fluidly, rather than rigidly, and then seeking out ways to leverage that understanding in innovative ways. #EduAr
I’ve been talking about the importance of this in my first grade class, and ensuring my scholars are getting a solid grasp of this! Perfect timing for an edchat! #eduAR
A2 number sense is an ability to make sense of and manipulate numbers to make sense of the world around us. Also efficiency, dump that somewhere in the definition. #EduAR
#EduAR
A2: from NCTM
Number sense refers to a person's general understanding of number and operations along with the ability to use his understanding in flexible ways to make mathematical judgments and to develop useful strategies for solving complex problems
I'll add in a few splat images as we go.
A key part of number sense has to do with inviting students - and ourselves - into opportunities to wonder and think flexibly in multiple ways.
#EduAr
What is beneath the splat?
How do you know?
How else could you approach it?
What can we learn from the combinations?
Is there more under the splat or outside?
#EduAr
A2 Number sense is the ability to represent math problems in a variety of ways and understand the connection between those different representations. #EduAR
A3 Number sense is like music because all the parts have to work together in harmony to create a symphony. And improvising is often more interesting than memorizing. #EduAR
A3 Number sense is like music because there are so many ways to experience it and each time you can take something different away. Based on the experience, you see things in diff ways. #eduAR

A3: Number sense is like a passport because it opens the doors to the world of math! Cornball, I know - but seriously, it’s truly the foundation - a strong number sense is essential to success in higher mathematics. #eduar

Mrs. Johnson's class has accepted the Kindness Challenge! Today we made encouraging posters & hung them around our school. "You are loved forever at SES." ❤️ #johnson109#seslearners#kindnesschallenge

I often think of how number sense is related to invitations to wonder about numbers...
... invitations to think in many ways.
Here is an invitation.

A4: Because math and language arts are two subjects you not only can’t get away from, but the better you get with them cognitively, they better your lot in life. #EduAR
A4: without number sense, one will be unable to access other parts of mathematics. It’s like wanting to speak a language but not knowing the dialect. Really hard to put things together coherently #EduAR
Yes, there is such an important difference between simply answering problems and truly creating a solution - or several solutions that can be compared and iterated. #EduAr
#EduAR
Must sleep
Look forward to reading all the great inspiration tomorrow
Thanks, @SteveWyborney for all your animated creations. So appreciate your hard work and generosity
A4: Number sense helps to build the confidence that students need to become successful in math later on. It takes them from the simple to the complex. #EduAr
I think number sense is also a way in which we can see into the beauty and flexibility of math. Number sense allows us to explore our thinking about math in rich, wonderful ways. #EduAR
A5 Number sense is developed through lots of diff experiences where Ss are making sense of relationships/patterns/strategy. Ss learn flexibility because they own it
#eduAR
A5 through lots of play and exploration with numbers in early childhood, then through the use of concrete materials and exploration of numbers in primary grades #EduAR
A5 I appreciate that you used the word developed. I think we try to hard to teach it instead for providing opportunities for students to develop NS. #EduAR
A5: Number sense is developed through giving students opportunities to play with numbers. The same skill taught in a variety of ways, with different tools, in a different game format, with guiding questions to help students think deeper. #EduAR
A5 Number sense can flourish when creative thinking meets interesting questions.
Providing both opportunities and encouragement to try new approaches is important. #EduAr

Number sense is developed with good questioning. Ex. (While looking at a story problem) Will our answer be more than what we started with or less? Reasonableness is a key to building an internal number line!! #EduAR
A5 Tasks that are designed to let students explore numbers in different ways. Concrete and pictorial experiences to help students visualize number. Problem solving experiences that challenge students to think outside the box. #EduAR

A5: number sense is developed by giving many, varied opportunities to observe, grapple with, compose and decompose numbers- by thinking about the why behind the how, and thinking about our own thinking. It’s built on visuals, notations, coversations, & growth from mistakes #eduar
A6 Ss are very perceptive and they learn from our actions - so it's really important that we are modeling how we are thinking and reasoning and being flexible #eduAR
A6 the more I understand the more I can support teachers to help them understand which leads to teachers being better able to promote student number sense. #eduAR

A4: Number sense is important because it helps students to be more comfortable & confident with math. They can begin to manipulate the numbers into "friendly" ways to make math easier. Example: 10+4 is EASIER than 9+5. #EduAR
A6: When we think outloud while using number sense to reason, our students get to see why it's important.. especially when we tell stories about being at the grocery store and having to estimate cost, add up mentally, etc. #EduAR
Personally wrestling with challenging math scenarios helps us to understand how to reach for mathematical understanding in new ways - to stretch what we know into new territory. To stretch our sense of number itself. #EduAr
A6: I grow in my own number sense every day - when I started using number talks five years ago, I was amazed at how much my students taught me, and at how much more they were willing to grow their understanding after watching me authentically learn from them. #eduar
A6: I believe the better we can anticipate s responses the better prepared we are to move their thinking forward. We MUST have excellent number sense in order to do this #EduAR
A6 - Lifetime learner seems so often referenced in ela. Making a commitment to learning has made me confront things I don’t understand well. It is easier for me to teach when I know what it is to be a learner. #EduAR
Kind of like developing independence and empathy... you can teach or model certain ways that contribute to them building these skills themselves. #EduAR
A6 Students need to see their teachers as learners, too. Also, developing our own number sense leads to an increase in our own curiosity and passion for the subject. #EduAR
Our students are truly amazing! I agree. When we give the opportunities like this - and we deeply believe in them - they will do amazing things and deeply impact us personally. #EduAr

A6 If we want to teach number sense effectively, we must have at least a continent to developing our own number sense. If we don’t, we may struggle to explain and set a poor model. #EduAR

A6: If we are modeling for students in the formative years that we are moving the mindset of simple recall and standard methods of solving to indepth mathematical equations, the impact would be greater as students progress through their academic journeys. #EduAr
Not uncommon. Wonder sometimes what kind of ideal approaches to math in the classroom would just be differentiation and not a formal intervention. #EduAr

A8: 31 inches, bc a crayon is about 3 in and when I mentally lay out that crayon along the string it fits about 10xs. And 3x10=30 plus 1 in for goofs. :) #EduAR

A7: Encourage students to talk about math and explain their thinking, even if their answer is wrong. Provide manipulatives. Encourage Mental Computation.
Allow time for children to compare their work to another, discussing the process of problem solving. #EduAr
There is something very important about taking a risk, committing to an estimate. It feels much different when we find out. We are invested in it. #EduAr
A8: I'm guessing 42 inches. I think it's between 31 & 47, but it looks longer than 31 "more" than it looks shorter than 47. If that makes sense! #EduAR
