We believe success in the 21st century depends less on what you know, and more on what you can do; therefore, we want to provide authentic learning experiences to support creative problem solving and encourage rigorous thinking.
Learning Advantage F.U.N. Empty Number Line explores the extensive versatility of the number line, while incorporating a motivational manipulative aspect. It represents the number system while, at the same time, is a manipulative where numbers can be moved, matched and plotted, up and down the entire number line. The possibilities for using the number line to identify equivalent numbers are endless, including whole numbers, base 10, ten frames, number words, and subitizing dots. By providing a variety of ways to represent numbers and the relationships between them helps to develop a strong foundation for number sense.
A strong foundation in early number concepts is critical for students’ future success in mathematics.
Research suggests that visual representations, like a number line, support students’ development of number sense by helping them create a mental representation of the order and magnitude of numbers. In addition, explicitly sequencing instruction to transition from concrete to visual to abstract representations of mathematics concepts supports students’ conceptual understanding.
