Number Talks for Number Sense  The Learner's Way  7 views

Nigel Coutts on 07 Apr 19"Number Talks" is an approach to the teaching and learning of Number Sense. Rather than relying on the rotememorisation of isolated number facts achieved through drills of "tablefacts", Number Talks aim to build confident, number fluency, where learners recognise patterns within and between numbers and understand the properties of numbers and operations. Number Talks are a "mind on" learning task that engages students in an active learning process as they search for patterns, decompose and recompose numbers and develop a flexible understanding.
