This introductory document presents numbers 0-9 as characters defined by their relevance in the world. It is a short version of many presentations I give around the world to teachers. The use of the information suggests how to discover numbers in the real world in order, quantity, shape and name. The individual number "personality slides" give suggested ideas as to how to incorporate story-telling into math education. I present related lessons daily via social media (@numbersalive is the twitter handle). NumbersAlive! was named one of the top 100 social media influencers in K12 education by EdMarket Week during June 2017. During and after presenting to teachers at various conferences and teacher-training events, teachers have asked for more materials that they can use to supplement their usual teaching. This initial material includes slides that have been adapted from presentations around the world, including ISTE 2015, 2016 and 2017. It can be used by any teachers to supplement/augment their own approach to math education.Classes can continue the idea to create a book of math in their school/home environment. Relevant grades: preK-5th-grade, but adults enjoy also!
