The Educo numeracy assortment focuses on number sense and operations. Number sense and counting are all about getting to know the symbols, meaning, positions, and representations of numbers. The main goal for children is to be able to use the symbols and ordinals, to determine an amount and to develop insight into quantities and meaning of numbers. Counting objects, dialling a phone number and connecting numbers to quantities are activities which stimulate number sense and counting.
Operations are all about adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing certain amounts. The main goal for children is to understand changes in quantities. Getting on or off a bus, sharing building blocks with two of your friends, or simply solving math sums are activities that stimulate an understanding of operations.
