Representing Numbers in Different Forms

Learning Style Addressed: Visual, Kinesthetic

Multiple Intelligence: Visual/Spatial, Logical/Mathematical, Bodily/Kinesthetic

Standards: 1.NBT.1, 1.NBT.2, 1.NBT.3, 2.NBT.1, 2.NBT.3, 3.NBT.2

Overview: Students demonstrate different representations of numbers in pictures, words, and standard form.

Objective: Students model, read, and write one through four digit numbers in standard notation, expanded notation (pictures) and words.

Lesson: Give students a number to represent.  Request that students model the number in at least 4 different ways.  Students can represent the number in standard notation (1,234), show the number using base 10 blocks, write the number using words and show the number in expanded notation (1,000 + 200 + 30 +4).

Digitized: Ask students to take a picture of their physical representation of the number.  Students can use a drawing app (like Doodle Buddy) to write the standard notation, words, and expanded notation on the picture.  Students can collect these pictures as evidence of Numbers and Operations in Base Ten.

Materials Needed: Base Ten blocks, Doodle Buddy app, camera

Math Problem Picture Story

Learning Style Addressed: Visual

Multiple Intelligence: Visual/Spatial, Logical/Mathematical, Verbal/Linguistic

Standards: 1.OA.2, 2.OA.1, 3.OA.8, 4.OA.2, 4.OA.3, 5.NF.2, 6.NS.1

Overview:  Students create a math problem picture story where they substitute words in the problem with pictures.

Objective: Students understand mathematical terminology in story problems.

Example: Jill is going to earn some spending during harvest time by helping pick for her neighbors.  She plans to charge $4.00  per .  Mr. Brown has 18 in his orchard and Mrs. Green has 15 in her orchard.  At the end of the first day the sum  of money earned is $8.00.  At the end of the second day the sum  of money earned is $16.00.

Digital option: Students can use a word processing program and clip art to create their math problem picture story.

Tech-free option: Students can use stickers, drawings, stamps, or pictures cut out of a magazine to create their math problem picture story.
