What's Included

Imagine a numberless world. I wonder if you can. No need for calculations, or counting tools of man. Imagine all the people living without 1, 2, 3’s…Abstract concepts are often difficult to teach. Students frequently desire concrete examples of calculations or real-world connections to concepts. The concrete becomes increasingly difficult when numbers are extraordinarily large or small. Join us as we explore techniques designed to provide real-world connections and help make numbers, big, small, or infinite, easier to understand.
