Sprig Math is an early learning program that supports students, from kindergarten to grade three, to develop a deeper understanding of early mathematics skills. Sprig Math helps all students develop a positive identity as a math learner and supports them to build a strong foundation in numeracy.
Why is Sprig Math important for early numeracy?
The mathematical processes can be seen as the processes through which all students acquire and apply mathematical knowledge, concepts, and skills.
Sprig Math provides teachers and parents with targeted learning activities that are designed to develop these foundational math processes for early learners.
Learning through problem solving provides students with numerous opportunities to connect mathematical ideas and to develop conceptual understanding
Reasoning and Proving
Reasoning and proving involves students using their understanding of mathematical knowledge, concepts, and skills to justify their thinking.
Students reflect when they are working through a problem to monitor their thought process and to consider whether their approach is appropriate.
Through making connections, students learn that math is more than a series of isolated skills and concepts, as well as how math exists in their everyday lives.
Communication involves the acquisition of the language of mathematics, developing expression, understanding, and using math terminology.
Students represent mathematical ideas and relationships and model situations using tools, pictures, diagrams, graphs, tables, numbers, words, and symbols.
Selecting Tools and Strategies
Students select appropriate technologies, tools, and strategies to perform particular tasks, to investigate ideas, and to solve problems.
