In this 8-lesson unit students use buttons to explore logical and numerical relationships that form the conceptual basis for understanding addition and subtraction operations. Topics include counting, ordinal numbers (and relative position), classification (attributes), relationships between numbers, addition of sets, commutativity of addition, sums to 10, fact families (including subtraction), three models of subtraction ("take away", comparative, missing addend), and bar graphs. Includes student activity sheets and a link to an online graphing applet.

This interactive Flash applet supports the exploration of early number. A child or teacher can place a number of objects on the screen and then move the objects to group them, drag them onto a number line or track, into a hoop to create sets of objects, or into a 10 by 10 grid. This applet lends itself well to group work with a projector. Clicking on the info button allows the user to mouse over items to learn how to use them.

This interactive Flash applet supports the exploration of numbers to 100 by simulating a 100-bead string. A teacher or child can move all or some beads to the left or right to add and subtract. The controls allow users to move beads individually or 10 at a time to model different counting and calculation strategies. Users can hide or show the numbers represented by the beads. This applet lends itself well to use on an interactive white board. A pdf guide to this collection of teaching applets is cataloged separately.

This interactive Flash applet provides a customizable set of dominoes that users can manipulate to play games or solve puzzles. It can be used with an interactive whiteboard to facilitate group work. Users can determine the size of a set (up to double-9), remove individual dominoes, rotate and move them, and change their size. The Teachers' Notes page includes a link to page containing domino games and challenges (cataloged separately).

This interactive Flash applet develops early counting skills (1-10), including one-to-one correspondence and subitizing. A group of dots appears on a card, in progressively higher numbers, and the user types the corresponding numeral. The applet provides help for incorrect answers. Setting options include type of pattern (standard or random), timing (on/off and duration), initial range of numbers displayed, and number of correct answers required for each pattern. [Note: If an error message appears at the end of a round, close the window to return to the applet.]

This narrative document describes the progression of Counting and Cardinality and Operations and Algebraic Thinking across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary students that of understanding and using numbers. The focus is on the basic operations—the kinds of quantitative relationships they model and consequently the kinds of problems they can be used to solve as well as their mathematical properties and relationships.

This interactive Flash applet is a number matching activity for up to ten objects. Students develop mouse skills as they click on a given number of moving fish, which land in their fish bowl. When children decide they have caught the right number, they can check their accuracy. Users may also listen to a counting song.

Students can use this interactive Flash applet to practice subitizing and counting groups of objects, to understand the importance of 5 in our base-10 number system, and to learn basic addition facts. In the four included games students construct groups of 5 objects, add groups of objects within 10, and identify and record numbers within 10. Auditory prompts support students with limited reading ability.
