A number balance, or math balance, allows a student to visually see how numbers relate as he makes the balance level to solve problems. Level Thinking: Foundations provides games and activities for the number balance that will help students grasp number relationships.
In math there is one correct answer, but many ways to arrive at that answer. While Level Thinking: Foundations provides practice for learning and reinforcing math facts, the focus is more than memorization. It guides students to explore multiple solutions and to think critically to solve a problem. Whether learning to count or working with advanced number relationships, students of any level will benefit from the activities and concepts presented in this book.
In addition to this book, you will need a number balance.
