Books are a powerful way to launch math investigations with children, but also with adult learners. Our Learning Labs often use picture books as a doorway into mathematics. Here, teachers explore multiple representations of the number five in Anno’s Counting Book by Mitsumasa Anno. It is critical for teachers of young children to appreciate the complexity of language about numbers and their various meanings.

Adult learning videos are portions of professional development sessions designed to engage adults in a meaningful way. They are not activities meant for recreating with children. Learn more about our Whole Teacher Approach and Learning Labs.
