Representing Numbers Using a Variety of Tools

posted Sep 6, 2016, 1:08 PM by Patrick Johnson
Students were given the following ACTION question in math this afternoon: Pick a number between 1 and 100 and find a way to represent that number. You may use your choice of math tool as long as you draw an image of how you represented your number. 

We sorted students' answers according to the math tool they used. 

I was very impressed with the variety of math tools student chose to represent their numbers :
tally marks
math arrays
base ten blocks
number lines
numbers lines
skip counting
