Number arrangements

Goal:  To determine if the child can recognize parts of numbers and combine those parts without having to count all.

 
 Sample Videos
While watching video one, notice at what point the student begins to count all of the dots.  What do you think that means?
Number Arrangements 1 
The student in video 2 was taped at the end of the year,  How are her responses different from the student in video 1?

Indicators For Prerequisite:  Recognizes Small Groups (groups of 3, 4, 5)

See page 84 in Blue Book


A

Student recognizes (knows) groups without counting all 4 cards presented.

P

Student recognizes (knows) groups without counting for 2 or 3 cards.



Students recognizes (knows) a group without counting for 1 card.

N

Student does not recognize (know) any groups without counting, or makes 2 or more errors.


Indicators for Level 1: Identifies Parts of Numbers

See pages 84-85 in Blue Book


A

Student identifies groups of 4 or more on at least 2 cards, and 3 or more on the rest of the cards.

P

Student identifies groups of 3 on 3 or more cards, may identify a group of 4 on 1 card.



Student identifies groups of 3 or larger on 2 of the 6 cards.

N

Student does not identify groups of 3 or larger.


Indicators for Level 2:  Combine Parts

See page 85 in Blue Book


A

Student adds parts for 4 or more cards, may count on for 2 of the cards, but does not count all for any of the cards.

P+

Student uses parts of numbers to find out how many for all 6 cards.  Counts on for 3 cards, or adds without counting for more than 3 cards, but makes an error, or does not count for any of the cards.

P

Student counts all of the dots on 1 or 2 of the 6 cards, or may make 1 error.

P-

Student counts all of the dots on 3 out of the 6 cards, or may make 2 errors.



Student counts all for 4 of the 6 cards.

N
