On-the-Spot Assessments
Diezmann, Carmel
Teaching Children Mathematics, v15 n5 p290-294 Dec 2008
Diezmann presents a series of classroom number-sense activities that encourage young students to use and refine their estimation, prediction, and observation skills. The activities explore the relationships between the number of objects in an opaque container and (1) its fullness and (2) the size of the objects in the container. Informal, on-the-spot assessments inform the teacher's instructional planning and decision making throughout the activities. (Contains 2 figures.)
