Dominoes Lend Themselves Well to Math Challenges

img_1115

Dominoes lend themselves well to math challenges. This afternoon during quiet time one of the Bitty Brown Bats and I played around with the number seven using dominoes as a language to display combinations of number seven.

I placed approximately twenty-five dominoes on my desk and asked this Bat to find number combinations that add up to seven. The dominoes had to be docked side by side, and only the domino halves touching could be added.

The colorful display in this blog post is an example of thinking happening in the Honeysuckle Vine Room by the Bitty Brown Bats.
Tomorrow is Wild Wilderness Wednesday. Check the weather for suitable outwear.
