Academic Enrichment // Cuyahoga Falls Campus // Week of 1/7/2019

Lesson:
Using the 9 tray we learned how to do static addition (no carry overs) with manipulatives.  We used equations that every column (units, tens, hundreds, and thousands) were fill and we used equations that some of the columns were empty (zero) in the column.  We learned some new terminology such as addends (the numbers being added) and sum (the answer of the equation).

Academic Enrichment — Cuyahoga Falls Campus — Week Of 12/17/2018

Lesson:
Intro to Decimals (unit, ten, hundred, and thousand) and the 9 tray. The 9 Tray purpose(s):

Direct
To make the child familiar with the different categories of numbers, especially with regard to reading the symbols.  To give the child the wording of large numbers

Indirect
For the hierarchy of numbers, that is, that while the significant figure are always from 1 to 9, it is the place they occupy in the complex number which gives them the importance of 1, 10, 100 or 1000.
For the fact that in a large number made up of two or more categories, the zero merely shows an empty place. That is, that one of the categories is lacking (in 1065, for instance, the hundreds are missing).
For the fact that only 9 of each category are necessary to form any number.
