April 24 on Food

I paid £8.45 for three food items. Is that possible?

Notes for Parents
Is that possible opens up a child's thinking.

It is fine for children to learn computation but make sure that's not all they learn.

Can your child say that one if the food item must be burgers? That's having number sense.

If a child can compute flawlessly and no able to make deductions like that then he or she had procedural understanding but not number sense. This often happens when parents and teachers overemphasize drills and computations. The mind becomes desensitized.
