MathRack Teaching Tools Provide the Foundation of Understanding Numbers and Their Relationship to One Another

Wheaton, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/26/2016 -- MathRack products are teaching tools specially designed to support and stretch primary student's mathematical thinking strategies and, in turn, their comprehension of number sense, addition, subtraction and problem solving. Built to enhance understanding as well as reinforce higher level counting strategies, MathRack's unique tools support invented strategies of children using moveable objects and are aligned with Common Core State Standards and TEKs.

Overall, MathRack can be a part of any whole math curriculum that provides the foundation of understanding numbers and has a number of potent benefits including the following:

- Supports the natural mathematical development of children
- Enables students to see, think, and manipulate moveable objects to deepen their number knowledge
- Supports and stretches invented strategies of children
- Requires children to use strategic thinking rather than procedural responses
- Promotes automatized facts enabling children to construct mental maps of number relationships

While all of MathRack's attributes are fantastic, its alignment with Common Core State Standards sets its value particularly high. It meets Common Core Standards for Kindergarten as well as the 1st and 2nd Grades in the following ways:

Kindergarten

- Understand addition as putting together and adding to and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
- Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10

First grade

- Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
- Understand and apply properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
- Add and subtract within 20.
- Work with addition and subtraction equations.

Second grade

- Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
- Add and subtract within 20.
- Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication.

"As long-time educators ourselves, we created a line of tools that truly take into account every aspect of education in mathematics," shared MathRack Founder Scott Rule. "Students, teachers, parents, and administrators alike find a simple yet powerful tool with MathRack that meets the Common Core Standards while remaining fun and engaging."
