Number conversations can be built into your daily schedule as short, daily exercises aimed at building number sense. Number sense is the ability to understand numbers and quantities, to use numbers flexibly, and to perform calculations mentally. According to research, students in the United States lack number sense. Traditionally, students have relied on rote algorithms to complete math problems, without really understanding what they are doing. Students who have strong number sense can solve problems in more than one way and can check that their answers make sense.
