ab: Summary: This study reports on two excerpts from a 6th grade Taiwanese
class, describing how a teacher examined and promoted his studentsâ€™
development of number sense. It illustrates an effort to integrate
number sense activities into the mathematics curriculum in ways that
encourage exploration, discussion, thinking and reasoning. The results
indicate that number sense can be developed through well-designed
number sense activities, effective teaching, and a good learning
environment. It also demonstrates that studentsâ€™ number sense and
mathematical thinking can be promoted through the use of multiple
representations.
