Elementary Math MethodsPerformance Assessment: Application of Elementary Mathematics Methods - LMM1Diedra ZinningerPart 1A: Hands On Tools/ManipulativesMeasuring cupsUse: Measuring cups can be used to teach and model measurements and fractions.Benefits: Using measuring cups can provide students with a way to visually compare different fractions.Challenges: Measuring matter can become disruptive and time consuming as it can create a large messand require lengthy clean up, depending on the matter being measured.TangramsUse: Tangrams can be used to help students create shapes and explore geography.Benefits: Tangrams can be manipulated to create a multitude of different shapes, allowing students toincrease conceptualization and connect prior knowledge about shapes to current geography lessons.Challenges: Tangrams can require fine motor skills that may be outside of some students capabilities andmay cause some frustration to students unable to create desired shapes.Base Ten BlocksUse: Base Ten Blocks are useful in teaching place value.Benefits: Base Ten Blocks provide a visual representation of place value which helps students increaseretention in the skill of regrouping when adding or subtracting whole numbers.Challenges: Students may become too reliant on Base Ten Blocks for determining place value.DiceUse: Dice can be used to help teach students about probability and ratios.Benefits: Dice can be a very engaging way of representing and discovering probability.Challenges: Dice can become very distracting and students may be tempted to play with the dice outsideof the intended purposes of the lesson.Part 1B: Virtual Tools/ManipulativesCalendarUse: The virtual calendar is useful in teaching the days of the week as well as the months of the year.Benefits: One of the benefits of using a virtual calendar is the ability to easily manipulate and change themonth or week and showcase any patterns or differences much more easily than on paper.
Challenges: A calendar has a very limited number of uses, only allowing for teaching a singular conceptof time. It does not measure anything smaller than days, and therefore has limited learningopportunities.Weblink:-Interface.htmlCurrencyUse: Virtual currency can be used to teach place value.Benefits: Virtual currency has many different uses and can be used to teach many different mathconcepts, such as place value, values of different currencies and fractions.Challenges: There are a large variety of components with currency and may prove to be confusing tosome students initially.Weblink:-Interface.htmlNumber LineUse: The virtual number line can be used to teach adding and subtracting of whole numbers.
