Number Lines

Number Lines

Linear models of number are very important as they support the development of an informal internal representation of number magnitude, called the mental number line. Different models are best suited to the teaching of different skills and understandings at different levels. This book is designed to help teachers make the best use of number tracks, number grids, and both empty and calibrated number lines.

Catch an Idea

Adam Spencer NLNW Ambassador

Catch An Idea is your chance to catch a maths moment! Whether you are indoors or outside, looking at patterns or playing sports, in the kitchen or in outer space; maths helps make sense of the world! Students and teachers photograph a mathematics moment, caption it and share it (digitally or as a poster around the school). For example, take a photo of someone measuring ingredients, tiling a roof or a football player kicking a goal. Math is everywhere!

AAMT would like to share your Catch an Idea. Email photos and caption to nlnw@aamt.edu.au

See the the ideas on AAMT's Instagram – or post your own #CatchAnIdea #NLNW

Taking 4 kids to the movies this Saturday. Need to coordinate two separate movies at two different times but have to leave enough time in the middle to get the grocery shopping done for the week and still get back to the cinemas before anyone gets out. Maths and movies – I love it!
