The Understanding Numbers series are sets of stations that provide students with the meaningful practice necessary for developing an understanding of the underlying structure of numbers, number relationships and operations.
The mathematics presented in the stations is foundational and crucial for developing computational fluency. These foundational concepts also provide the basis for students' understanding of the mathematics they will encounter in the future.
Each set of stations presents a variety of activities focusin on Place Value, Addition & Subtraction, and Understanding Decimals. The tasks are designed to meet a range of needs allowing all students to work at their own level.
These stations should be experienced over and over again until students have developed proficiency with the tasks. Most students will benefit from working with the appropriate set of stations for several weeks.
