This week the children experimented with calculators. Through many discussions and hands on mathematical activities, the children learned about making numbers bigger through addition. Afterwards, we came up with some fun number stories to share with each other and solve. As an extension to our math lesson, we brought out our calculators to experiment with addition. We again created number stories, but this time we used our calculators to solve them, which really got the children excited about math. They could not wait to use the calculators again at choice time, and some of them even went home asking for one to use at home. We are budding mathematicians!
