Place value is a fairly abstract concept for kids. They often have a hard time manipulating and seeing the different parts of the numbers. The Value Pak can help!
This week, allow me to introduce Abracus! The second of our Math Mights featured in the Math Mights 8-in-1 Flip Chart: Addition Strategies, Abracus holds a magic wand and uses the strategy of compensation. Many times people confuse the strategies of...
Over the next few weeks, to celebrate the launch of our Math Mights 8-in-1 Flip Chart for Addition Strategies, we want to take some time to introduce you to our four main characters: D.C., Abracus, Value Pak, and T-Pops!
