Introducing the Language Approach for Teaching Math: An ORIGO One Video
This is a post sponsored by ORIGO Education. All opinions are our own.
One last time, The Curriculum Corner is proud to share the final installment in a series of short videos to help you with your math instruction. We have been so fortunate to have partnered with ORIGO Education and to be able to show you some of the wonderful resources they provide.
We have already shared five other ORIGO One videos, and we hope they have helped you in your thinking as you begin to teach new math concepts to your students. If you haven’t seen these, be sure to check at the bottom for links to all five.
This is the sixth and last in the series of videos we are sharing by ORIGO Education. Each one minute video is designed to help teachers discover, better understand or even explain a new strategy for teaching a math concept. These videos have been created for teachers, not students. The hope is that each one will give you some kind of new knowledge or different thinking that will help with your instruction in the classroom.
The ORIGO One videos are meant to show you how to create light bulb moments for your students and therefore increase their understanding of concepts.
These videos are quick and easy to understand. Some may even seem like common sense after you listen, but the hope is that they will perhaps introduce you to something you haven’t already thought of with regards to teaching a new skill.
We hope that you will find the videos we have shared to be useful in your classroom instruction! And again, the best part is…they are only one minute long!
This sixth video will be helpful for teachers who want a better understanding of how language in math can play a greater role in student understanding. The video shares how developmentally appropriate language helps children move from words they know, to the mathematical materials language we use, and then to the more abstract language for symbols in mathematics. As students move through this language development, they gain a deeper understanding of what mathematical symbols truly mean. Take a look…
