They explore unitising, leading to an opportunity to explore the patterns formed and build an understanding of place value. The lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, discussion points and extension activities. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry program.
