Listening to Children in Order to Capture Potential Learning
Cheeseman, Jill; Michels, Deborah
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v18 n2 p3-8 2013
Jill Cheeseman and Deborah Michels let us eavesdrop on a young child's attempt to solve a four-digit subtraction. In the process they describe the use of an empty number line as a tool for describing the calculation process. If you haven't tried using an empty number line, then the authors outline some compelling reasons for using empty number lines in the classroom.
