EP 03 Rekenrek and Representation

By Cathy Fosnot

It's time for another season of The Math Pod with Cathy Fosnot. In this series, Cathy and her team explore "Developing Automaticity of the Basic Facts and Computational Fluency using Strings of Related Problems". Join us for a six-week journey through the exploration of Mini-lessons, intentionally-crafted strings, and the fascinating world of Cathy's mathematics landscapes for elementary and middle school students.

The Rekenrek is a powerful mathematical tool used to nurture the development of number sense, with its natural focus on the 5 and 10 structures, which is instrumental in helping children visualize numbers, and see them as collections of objects in groups.

Ini this episode, Cathy Fosnot is joined by Jennifer Burrows (YRDSB) and Heather Theijsmeijer (Rainbow District School Board) for a conversation about the power of Rekenrek in the mathematics classroom.
