1: Just like the numbers you put on your door so people know what your house number is we can use them to understand math in a "whole" different way

3: Lets get started on a simple equation that many students should be able to figure out.... | So what is the answer? That's right 3+3=6 Great Job!!
4: Now let's try half numbers and see what happens
5: Ok so let's think this one through. We have 2 and 1/2 oranges and 1 and 1/2 apples what do we have?
6: THAT'S RIGHT!!! 2 1/2 +1 1/2 = 4
7: Now that we have done half numbers and a quick review of how to count let's move on to more numbers.
8: Now let's try a different food. How about cookies and cakes, posibably some Vegetables.
