Primary: The big idea that a number can be represented by a numeral, or by different objects laid out in different ways is an essential understanding for students as they progress. Give your child a number such as 18 and ask them them to write the numeral and draw that many dots (grade 1), show the number with tally marks (grade 2), with number cubes that add up to the number (grade 3). Explore ways of representing this number together.
Junior: An essential understanding in grades 4-6 in the idea that a fraction can be part of a whole or part of a set. Questions to ask your child: Show what more than half of a dozen eggs could look like. (grade 4), Draw a picture that shows more than 3/4 of a dozen (grade 5 or 6) Asking questions with more than one answer allows room for you to talk and discuss a variety of possibilities.
