Description

Place value is one of the important big ideas in mathematics to understand well. In this hands-on workshop, we will play with a variety of materials that will develop a better understanding for the aspects of place value such as additive and multiplicative place value and renaming. A Place Value Year Planner will be used by participants to track place value tasks. The workshop will also explore place value assessments.
 
Participants will receive a complete Place Value Year Planner set, a ‘Playing with Place Value’ book and some Place Value materials.
