We are working to “crack the codes” of math. Did you know that math has lots of secret codes? It does! Instead of sounding out “plus” or “minus” you can just write “+” or “-“. There are lots of patterns and discoveries to be made in math! We chose to work on these projects and worked to make math discoveries.

It all started when someone made this on the counting board:

abacus

We talked about the beads on this counting board for a long time. What numbers do you see? Where are they? Can you write them? How many beads are on each line? Can you “crack the code” and find some of the math patterns in this design?

We went off to make our own projects.

Take a look at our work!
