Mathterpieces: The Art of Problem-Solving

Greg Tang

Australian Curriculum:  Description

Foundation Year – Subitise small collections of objects (ACMNA003);
Year 1 – Represent and solve simple addition and subtraction problems using a range of strategies including counting on, partitioning, and rearranging parts (ACMNA015);
Year 2 – Describe, continue, and create number patterns resulting from performing addition or subtraction (ACMNA035).

Teaching ideas
Students investigate other situations involving subitising and counting on with and without distractors in routine and non-routine situations. Students could write the number sentences represented by art in this book (representational to abstract).

Australian Curriculum:  Description

F.Y РEstablish understanding of the language and processes of counting by naming numbers in sequences, initially to and from 20, moving from  any starting point (ACMNA001); F.Y РRepresent practical situations to model addition and sharing (ACMNA004); Year 1 РRepresent and solve simple addition and subtraction problems using a range of strategies including counting on, partitioning and rearranging parts (ACMNA015); Year 3 РRecall multiplication facts of two, three, five and ten and related division facts (ACMNA056)

Teaching ideas
Build on the concept of counting on, partitioning and part-part-whole with other object sequences.
