Number Frames

Estimated Time: 1 Hour  |  Created By: Ashley Johnson

Number Frames encourages student to interact with numbers as they deepen their mathematical thinking and reasoning. Through the use of 5, 10, 20, and 100 frames, students are able to move away from one-by-one counting to recognize visually the relationship between numbers and benchmark quantities represented in the frames. Students can select a variety of counters and colors as well as annotate their work with the drawing tool.

Objective: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able manipulative the tools within the Number Frames app to demonstrate various quantities within a desired frame. Participants will be able to count, represent, compare and compute numbers using a frame.
