Teacher guide reSolve: Place Value: Number Sorting

TLF ID M021822

This sequence of two lessons explores sorting numbers and place value. In the first lesson students identify the value of digits in a number and also build correct terminology to sort and describe 1-digit, 2-digit and 3-digit numbers. In the second lesson, students are challenged to use Venn diagrams to sort and describe numbers. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources such as spreadsheets. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
