Domino additions
Provide students with two sets of cards representing the die patterns 1 to 6, and one set of numeral cards 1 to 12. Encourage students to find all the domino combinations for a given number. For example: six and two is eight five and three is eight four and four is eight

Dot flash
With the overhead projector light turned off, place counters on the projector in a standard dot pattern. Vary the number of counters from two to ten. Instruct the students to look at the screen carefully while you switch the light on for a brief period of time. Have the students use their own counters to make the pattern shown on the overhead or draw the pattern they saw. Ask the students to make statements about the patterns they saw as well as combinations of parts for the pattern. For example, for a pattern of five dots the child may seethe combination two and three or four and one or two and two and one.

Flash cards
Give flash dot-pattern cards for numbers up to ten to the students. (See BLM DENS 1 page 141) Provide students with a collection of counters to construct the same pattern as on the dot-pattern card.

Computer task: Arrays


There are ten arrays included in the learning object: 1. 4 x 3 2. 5 x 3 3. 4 x 4 4. 5 x 4 5. 3 x 3 6. 6 x 3 7. 7 x 5 8. 6 x 4 9. 5 x 5 10. 8 x 3

Off computer tasks:


Guess my square
Organise students into pairs so that they are sitting opposite each other. Provide each student with an equal number of multi-link cubes or pattern tiles and a sheet of cardboard which will be used as a screen. Ask students to take turns to construct a simple array pattern using the material provided. Students should screen the array from their partner until the pattern is completed. The student then briefly shows the array to the partner before screening the array again. The other student constructs the same array pattern from memory. Instruct students to uncover and compare both array patterns. The students then calculate the total number of items in each array.

Create an array
Explain the term array to the students and provide them with a 10 x 10 array and two sheets of paper. Use an overhead projector or large chart to demonstrate how the 10 x 10 array can be covered with two pieces of paper to form other arrays. For example, cover the top three rows with paper and the first five columns with another piece of paper to form a 7 x 5 array (7 rows with 5 in each row). Ask the students to use their arrays sheets and paper to make nominated arrays. Have the students use skip counting of the rows to determine the answer.

Place a container, such as an empty ice-cream container, between a pair of students. Turn the container upside down and place five Unifix blocks on top. Instruct students to look away while their partner takes away some, or all, of the blocks from the top of the container and hides them under the container. The first student turns back to see how many blocks are left on top of the container. Using this information, the student determines how many blocks were placed under the container. The student may then lift the container to confirm the answer.

Computer task: Penguin pins

Off computer task: Orange tree


Provide each pair of students with an outline of an orange tree and 20 counters. Instruct the students to place the counters onto the tree. The students then pick the oranges from the tree by moving nominated numbers of counters away. (Students can roll either a 1-6, 1-10 or 1-20 die to indicate the number of oranges to take off the tree) Ask the students to determine how many oranges are left on the tree and to record the number combinations.

Computer task: Washing line


The game includes three washing lines: 1. 2. 3. 1 10 7 16 15 24

Off computer task:


Hang it on the line (whole class activity)
Hang a washing line (nylon rope or similar) across the chalkboard or between two chairs. Ask the students to peg numeral cards in the correct sequence on to the washing line. Vary this activity by having students peg the cards in a backwards sequence or by displaying some numeral cards on the line and asking students to replace the missing cards correctly. Variations: Use the numeral cards 1 30. Flip over the odd numbers displaying the even numbers only. Children whisper count by twos. Display only the multiples of three, children count by threes etc Use A4 card, cut in half vertically, and write the numbers on the lower half and fold the card in half. Placing the card over the line is more effective than using pegs, as it is easier to turn the cards around to hide the numbers.

Off computer task: Remainders count


Provide each pair of students with three numeral dice and paper on which to record. In turns, students roll the dice and using the three numbers shown make a division number sentence. For example if a 6, 4 and 5 were rolled, then a student could make 46 5. The student determines the answer and keeps a tally of any remainders; in this case the remainder would be one. However, if the student makes the sentence 45 6, the remainder would be three. The remainders are added and become the students score. The winner is the first to reach a score of 20.

Variations
Once the dice have been rolled, the students partner determines the division question. Students try to give each other questions that will result in the lowest possible remainder. Use dice numbered 4 9, remainders are added to reach a score of 30. Play the game with the whole class divided into two teams. Teams record their remainders on a chart. (see above)

Students can use an empty number line and hundreds chart to assist with the calculation.

Off computer tasks:


Countdown
The gameboard, enlarged to A3 is placed on the desk or floor. The object of the game is to reduce the countdown to zero, starting at 101 with the least number of throws. This is done by throwing counters at the dartboard and deducting the amount from the total. Students can double or triple their score by hitting the red bands on the board. The first student to reach zero exactly wins. Use an empty number line to record the score and number of throws.

First to zero
Students start at 101, roll a die (either 1-6, 1-10 or 1-12 etc) in turn and subtract the number from the total. The first student to reach zero exactly wins.

Now complete the calendar. Ask the students with the Saturday card and the numeral card showing 13 to place their cards down on the floor first. Ask questions which will then allow each student to place his or her card down. For example, Which number comes before 13? Which number comes after 13? Which number will be directly under 13 on the calendar? Where will number 1 go? If a student makes an error, let the class discover the mistake and state how it should be corrected. Students then record the calendar month and write about all the patterns they saw. (see worksheet) Reference: Talking about Patterns and Algebra, Calendar patterns, pages 81 & 82

Off computer task: Four turns to 100


Organise the students into pairs or groups of four. Provide each group of students with a pack of cards in the range 1 to 9. Each player draws a card from the deck and decides if the number they have drawn will represent ones or tens. For example, if a five is drawn it can represent five or fifty. The players take a second draw from the pack, again nominating if the number represents tens or ones and add the number to their first card. Have the students record their total on an empty number line. Continue the activity until each student has drawn four cards. The player with the highest total not exceeding 100 wins.
