Thinking with Numbers features classroom teachers and students engaged in mental math sessions that foster children's understanding of number concepts. This unique approach enables teachers to find out what children are thinking and doing when they add, subtract, multiply, and divide.
This DVD demonstrates real students in real classrooms, typical of most students in this country. Yet not one of them says, "I can't do this problem." They all try, and they all find a way to solve the problems they are given. Why? Because they have been taught to do math in a way that makes sense to them.
