The MathRack (aka Rekenrek) is a unique tool that allows children to develop number sense at their own pace. The MathRack 20 is modeled after the rekenrek/arithmetic rack from the Netherlands. With the built-in 5 & 10 structure, MathRack tools help children build number relationships that lead to more advanced strategies. Each lesson in the book contains the BIG IDEAS that the activity builds, what to LOOK FOR so you know how your students are progressing, QUESTIONS TO ASK to help move them toward more advanced thinking strategies, and the COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS each lesson addresses. MathRacks are powerful tools that benefit the entire range of learners; from special education to gifted & talented students, and all the students in between.
