Great resource book for anyone who teaches math. This book will give you a different view of mathematics and change the way you think about and teach math in the future. This book will introduce the fundamentals behind numeration systems based on the additive property, the place value principle, and other number bases. You will be able to see how they are similar to our present day Hindu-Arabic numeration system and how our system evolved. Numeration systems are rarely taught in today's classroom but are a great way to introduce some history, create an interesting and challenging atmosphere, improve problem solving skills, and give practice in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers in a non-traditional fashion. You will learn how to create your own numeration system and connect it to our present day system.
