This workshop will look at a learning trajectory for developing number competency and extending those competencies into grade 3 and beyond. Participants will engage in tasks that can be used in their classroom as they analyze student work and consider the ways in which the tasks support stronger student understandings. Putting Essential Understanding of Number and Numeration into Practice, Pre-K–2 focuses on providing ways of developing number and numeration concepts and skills that build a strong foundation.


  • Exploring trajectories for supporting stronger number development in early grades
  • Using tasks that will uncover misconceptions and support number sense concepts
  • Understanding of students’ thinking and leveraging their ideas
