Amazing Mathematicians

During our morning message we challenged our children to think of different ways to represent the number "15".  Imagine our amazement and pride when a discussion of 3 handprints representing 15 turned into a conversation about 3 groups of 5 equals 15. We then represented this emergent multiplication with the traditional writing. 3 X 5 = 15 

Why don't you challenge your children to represent different numbers in this way at home?
