# Power of Ten

Learning Over Time:
Decimals, Fractions and Percentages - Grade 4 to 8

This NEW manual is intended as a resource for every teacher required to teach decimals, fractions and percentages. The idea is to go in and out of the manual rather than move through it.

Show your child how to visualize,
set them up for strong math skills.
Break up numbers.
Make problems simpler.
They can learn math the same way.

##### WHY IT WORKS

Basic math-we use it every day. But how do we learn it, and when? New studies suggest that subitizing – learning to identify numbers without counting – is crucial to the development of number sense and basic fact acquisition. Power of Ten cards teach children ages 3-11 to subitize as they play.

##### MAKE IT FUN

Children learn most of what they know from parents, siblings, and classmates. A child models what they think they want to be, so it’s important that they’re shown that math is fun, interesting, and useful. Power of Ten cards are designed to help us remember basic facts in a fun, interesting way.

##### PARENTS

We know young children love being read to, that reading with your child is the keystone to literacy. The same goes with math. Children can begin acquiring basic numeracy concepts from the age of 3 – playing with Power of Ten cards can show your preschooler or struggling student how to think mathematically.

##### TEACHERS

Using Power of Ten in your classroom can help your students develop pattern recognition and a problem solving mindset, equipping them for more advanced concepts. Our system parallels the way the brain learns language by teaching math in an integrated way.

## Mastering the basic facts visually develops a natural tendency to problem-solve.
