What it does imply is that manipulatives, without the process of construction and reflection, are not very helpful. Yet, if we use the materials as building tools, they can be valuable. For example, once the student has experienced a curricular sequence as previously described and developed the idea of ones, tens, and hundreds, we can use blocks to explain rules of operations. indd 31 1/27/2016 1:17:18 PM b2274 Math Makes Sense! Math Makes Sense! 3 Slow and Steady Wins the Race This popular saying also applies to the teaching of mathematics.

This is why teachers’ questions leading to reflection are so important. Finally, around third grade (eight to nine years), we begin teaching the notation of ones, tens, and hundreds. We propose a different curriculum order from the present one. We start by exploring numbers, observing their organization in groups of ten. It is not until the student has this experience and an understanding of the part– whole property that we introduce the properties of our system. Initially we use metaphors (pre-formal) to analyze these properties: groups of straws, the monetary system, the abacus.

Before requesting a representation, she showed them how ten unit blocks correspond to a block of ten. Every child began to represent numbers with units. ” Some children did not understand her and carried on with units. Those who understood the suggestion used the ten block when they reached 18. However, they represented number 24 with a ten block and 14 units. They had seen 16 written as 10 plus 6 and they carried on likewise with 18, apparently understanding the system. When they represented 24 as 10 plus 14, she realized that the children had followed my suggestion to change ten units for a ten block, but that they did not understand the system.
