Foreword Essential Mathematics Concepts is designed to assist teachers in assessing and recording individual mastery of mathematical concepts that have been taught in the classroom. The children play a part in assessing their work; encouraging reflection upon their individual skills and a sense of ‘ownership’. The package brings together teacher and pupil assessment, providing parents with an ongoing awareness of their child’s progress throughout the year.

Teacher Notes The Teacher • Uses the assessment boxes, both as a method of recording the child’s current level of concept understanding as well as a tool for communication between the school and home. • Plans future activities based on outcomes. • Sends the activities home as part of the child’s work sample file or portfolio.

Objective Number - Addition: Combining more than two numbers. This indicates the activity is a number activity in sorting and classifying; arranging and ordering.

Using the Activities

Vi ew in

sa

m pl

e

• Ensure the concept has already been covered in class and have ready resources. • Go through the activity with the children to ensure correct understanding of what is required of them. • Encourage the children to work independently. • Remind the class that upon completion they can complete and colour the face. • Remind the class that the boxes are for you to fill in—which can simply and quickly be done while the activity is in progress!

The Child • Completes the activity. • Completes the ‘face’ to express their perception of their understanding of the activity.

The Parent • Notes the assessment of their child’s understanding of each mathematical concept.

Essential Mathematics Concepts

A Note to Parents Dear Parents, Your child has attempted to complete the mathematics sheets independently. These sheets consolidate and reinforce concepts taught in mathematics throughout each term. As your child brings the worksheets home you will notice a gradual progression of conceptual development. The purpose of these sheets is threefold. • To consolidate in your child a mathematical concept. • To assess your child’s understanding of the concept at that time. • To give you the opportunity to observe your child’s ongoing work. Each sheet shows the concept and my assessment. Below is an example. Number – Addition: Combining more than two numbers (each less than 10).

A face on each sheet is completed by your child at the end of each activity to indicate how he/she felt about their ability to complete the worksheet. I then tick the appropriate assessment box, referring back to previous observations as well as the current worksheet. By referring to these worksheets, you will be able to observe on an ongoing basis the understanding your child has of mathematical concepts being covered in the classroom. Come report time you will know what to expect! Should you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to make an appointment to discuss them with me. Yours sincerely,
