Title: Welcome to Everyday Math


1
Welcome to Everyday Math!
  • Riverside Elementary
  • Math Night
  • February 10, 2009

2
Background of Everyday Math...
  • Developed by the University of Chicago School
    Mathematics Project
  • Based on research about how children learn and
    develop mathematical power
  • Provides the broad mathematical background needed
    in the 21st century

3
In Everyday Math you can expect to see
  • A problem solving approach based on everyday
    situations
  • An instructional approach that revisits concepts
    regularly (spiral curriculum)
  • Frequent practice of basic skills, often through
    games
  • Lessons based on activities and discussion, not a
    textbook
  • Mathematical content that goes beyond basic
    arithmetic

4
A Spiraling Curriculum
  • Mastery of mathematics concepts and skills comes
    with repeated exposure and practice, not after
    just one lesson
  • Enables new connections and building on what has
    already been learned while learning more
    difficult and challenging content

5
Components of an Everyday Math Lesson
6
Warm-Up Activites
  • Mental Math and Reflexes- Exercises, (usually
    oral), designed to strengthen childrens number
    sense and to review and advance essential basic
    skills.
  • Math Message- Sets the tone and focus for the
    content of the lesson.

7
Sample Math Message
  • Madeline had 38 in her bank account.
  • She Deposited another 15.
  • How much money was in her account then?

8
Introduction of New Content
  • The main part of the lesson focusing on new
    content
  • Math Journal Pages-
  • Reinforce the concepts being taught for a
    particular lesson.

Ongoing Learning Practice
  • Games provides necessary practice for children
    to build, master, and maintain strong mental
    arithmetic skills.

15
Home Links/Study Links
  • Everyday Maths version of homework.
  • Each lesson has a Home/Study Link. Home/Study
    Links are reviewed before the lesson begins.
  • Important for your child to bring their
    Home/Study Links back to school.
  • Authors encourage family support for Home/Study
    Link completion

16
Purpose of Home/Study Links
  • To promote follow-up
  • To provide enrichment
  • They offer opportunities for you to become
    involved in your childs math education.

17
Important Materials to Support Your Child at Home
  • Student Reference Book (SRB)
  • Each Home/Study Link provides a correlation to
    the SRB for additional support on a topic.
  • Parent Letters
  • Provides an overview of the current unit
  • Provides key mathematical vocabulary and
    definitions
  • Provides answer keys for Home/Study Links

Assessment
  • Everyday Math curriculum provides many different
    opportunities for teachers to determine
    individual student progress
  • Written
  • Verbal
  • Observations

23
In ConclusionOur goal is to help students
develop mathematical literacy
