Teaching Number: 8 Things You MUST Know #4

This video defines a new number knowledge procedure, and goes on to outline 4 key considerations whenever we teach a new procedure:

2. Do they actually possess this knowledge?

3. We must then reduce the intrinsic cognitive load of the procedural-part expectations, in order to direct attention on the actual new procedure.
