Developing Language and Mathematics: Counting and Operations

Nick Johnson, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Scholar, DREME Teacher Education at UCLA
Angela Chan Turrou, Ph.D., Senior Researcher, DREME Teacher Education at UCLA

This session explores the planned and informal spaces within classroom teaching to support students’ engagement in counting and operations (adding, subtracting, etc.). We will engage together around classroom videos and student work samples of children counting and operating on everyday objects to explore research-based ideas of student thinking and pedagogy. We highlight multiple forms of communication that build mathematical understanding, including students explaining, demonstrating with physical tools, gesturing, and creating written representation.
