Notes

Abstract: Place value is a concept many elementary students struggle to accomplish. Many misconceptions arise when students are attempting at mastering this concept. The fourth grade class the author was observing was no different. The author gave a pre-diagnostic test to determine the exact concepts. The author assessed six students who were all performing below grade level and determined that all six had not mastered the understanding of place value. Students, who have not mastered place value, cannot fully master other basic math skills. The author began the 7 week tutoring period with basic place value. The students were able to make progress in math by building a foundation for their knowledge to prosper. The use of concrete manipulatives and the connection to real life concepts helped the students relate the information to their lives and made it possible for the students to visualize the mathematical processes that were occurring with certain mathematical functions.
