This packet of information for teachers is designed to be used with the How Many Berries Did I Eat? Problem of the Week from the Math Forum collection for grades K to 2. The sample problem provides an exemplar of the type of problem teachers can use to promote students' mathematical thinking and reasoning and engage their interest. The key concept addressed in this problem is subtraction. The packet contains the sample problem, alignment to the Common Core State Standards, possible solutions, teaching suggestions, a print-ready copy of the problem, and a problem-specific scoring rubric.

This interactive Flash applet helps children understand the "take away" model of subtraction. Users choose starting numbers from within 10 or 20. A group of rabbits appears and the user is asked how many will remain if a certain number run away. Mousing over a clue button dims the number of runaways. After selecting the correct remainder, the rabbits run away, and the applet displays the number model and the word sentence that represent the problem. [Available for iPad & iPhone in the iTunes AppStore.]

This is a collection of simple interactive activities to help young children practice early number skills. They use visual representations to develop counting and subitizing skills, number sense, place value concepts, and basic whole number operations (addition, subtraction, doubling). A teacher page summarizes the purpose and functions of each activity.

Students can use this interactive applet to practice quick recognition of the number or value of a small group of objects, without one-to-one counting. This skill, called subitizing, is important in the development of number sense. The user chooses among several representations, including fingers, a pair of dice, an abacus, a ten frame, and coins. In this version of the game an adjustable timer determines how long each group is visible. The applet keeps score of the number correct in each round of ten attempts.

The characters in this free iOS app model effective strategies for learning addition facts (counting, counting on, near doubles, tens). During the tool round children develop conceptual understanding as they practice using these strategies. The speed round develops fact fluency and encourages memorization, providing hints as needed. Controls allow teachers to setup a class and adjust difficulty settings.

Students can use this interactive Flash applet to practice subitizing and counting groups of objects, to develop awareness of our base-10 number system, and to learn basic addition facts. In the four included games students construct groups of 10 objects, add groups of objects within 20, and identify and record numbers within 20. Auditory prompts support students with limited reading ability.

This game helps children develop concepts and fluency in addition and subtraction within 15. Students indicate the correct answer to a displayed problem by clicking on the appropriately numbered person in a number line. Audio and visual cues help reinforce counting on and back, as well as the meaning and effects of the operations. The resource includes links to printable worksheets and useful information and activities for teachers and parents.

This flexible, interactive Flash applet allows students to explore number patterns and to develop number sense and fluency with addition, subtraction, and multiplication. The student or teacher enters a starting number and a step increment. Both values may be up to 4 digits and either positive or negative. The user then mentally carries out the sequence and enters the resulting 10th and 11th terms. The first 9 terms are color-coded in groups of 3 and may be shown or hidden one group at a time. Users have the option of hiding or showing the starting number and/or the increment.
