Teaching Arithmetic: Lessons for Introducing Place Value. Grade 2.
Wickett, Maryann; Burns, Marilyn
Arithmetic is the major focus of elementary mathematics instruction. This book contains a series of lessons designed to meet the goals of place value instruction and give students a rich understanding of how the number system works. Topics include counting larger numbers in two or more ways, recognizing that the number of objects in a group remains unchanged regardless of how they are grouped, and explaining that digits have different values depending on their position in a number.
