A story about bears moving in and out of a cave provides an opportunity for math thinking. Each and every primary math game and activity can be a way for educators to understand the math thinking that is going on in their minds.

Focus on the Child videos are taken from one-on-one interviews with individual children. The interviews are designed to elicit evidence of children’s mathematical thinking. They are not teaching episodes or formal assessments.
