Subject: best practices in math

You may want to look at the DotMath for kids web site. There are some free graphics there and what I think is the best practice to teach math k-4. The site is at http://dotmath.tripod.com/ The number is explained as a pattern similar to dice and the number symbol is then generated from the dice pattern. The Charts and tools help the child see the big picture about what numbers are and how to use them. I have seen children beat the calculator after learning this method. I hope this helps you in your search to find best practies in teaching math to children. Owen
