Kids who have strong number sense understand what numbers are, how they relate to each other, and the affects that different operations have on them. These kids can easily compose and decompose numbers and are able to make reasonable estimates making computation much easier. In other words, kids with strong number sense are comfortable with numbers.
And when kids are comfortable with numbers, math becomes much easier. The good news is, helping our children develop a strong sense of numbers is not that hard to do.
