CEU Webinar 2
Early Math : Sets and Number Sense

This focused on the key ideas about sorting Attributes can be used to sort; The same collection can be sorted in different ways collections into sets. Sets can be compared and ordered. and strategies in teaching about sets and number sense: Numbers are used many ways, some more mathematical than others. Quantity is an attribute of a set of objects, and we use numbers to name specific quantities. The quantity of a small collection can be intuitively perceived without counting.

CEU Webinar 3
Early Math : Counting and Number Operations

This focused on the big ideas and strategies in teaching about counting: Counting can be used to find out “how many” in a collection; and Counting has rules that apply to any collection. On number operations: Sets can be changed by adding items (joining) or by taking some away (separating). Sets can be compared using the attribute of numerosity, and ordered by some more than, less than, and equal to.(Comparing sets) A quantity (whole) can be decomposed into equal or unequal parts; the parts can be composed to form the whole.(Number composition)

CEU Webinar 4
Early Math : Patterns, Measurement and Data Analysis

This focused on the big ideas and strategies in teaching about patterns: Patterns are sequences (repeating or growing) governed bya rule: they exist both in the world and in mathematics; Identifying the rule of pattern brings predictability and allows us to make generalizations; and The same pattern can be found in different forms. On measurement: Many different attributes can be measured, even when measuring a single object; All measurement involves a “fair” comparison; and Quantifying a measurement helps us describe and compare more precisely. On Data Analysis: The purpose of collecting data is to answer questions when the answers are not immediately obvious; Data must be represented in order to be interpreted and how data are gathered and organized depends on the question and It is useful to compare parts of the data and to draw the conclusion about the data as a whole.

Early Math : Spatial Relationship and Shapes

This focused on the big ideas and strategies in teaching about spatial relationship: Relationships between objects and places can be described with mathematical precision. (Describing space); Our own experiences of spaces and two-dimensional representations of space reflect a specific point of view. (Visualizing space); and Spatial relationships can be visualized and manipulated mentally. On shapes: Shapes can be defined and classified by their attributes; The flat faces of solid (three-dimensional) shapes are two-dimensional shape; and Shapes can be combined and separated (composed and decomposed) to make new shapes.
