# NUMBER LINE

Because of the many tools available in Super Math World we can teach number lines in a multitude of ways. However, the most direct way is that we use elevators that rise up or down depending on the value inserted, which make staircases when sequential values of the number line are used.

## STUDENTS WILL

• Work with whole number lines
• Work with fractional number lines
• Learn interval counting by ones, fractions, and wholes

## BEFORE YOU BEGIN

• This lesson will build basic fluency with the number line.
• Ask students what a number line is. Is it always the same number line?
• Can you skip values on the number line? (yes)
• Are there values in between the numbers you choose on the number line? (yes)
• No previous experience with number lines is needed.

## AFTER CLASS DISCUSSION

• Who can tell me something about the number line?
• Are all number lines the same, or do they look different? How are some different?
• Did you put numbers in order? What numbers did you use?
• Can negative numbers exist on the number line? What happens when they do?

## IN THE GAME

• Allow 20-25 minutes minimum play time.
• Sessions can last 90+ minutes. Your kids will not want to stop!
• In-game instructions make the experience easy for students.
• Students may get stuck – partner them so they can discover the solution together.
• Super Math World is designed to introduce a new concept with simple interactions, which get more difficult as you progress. The game should totally immerse your learners and open their minds to the underlying mathematical concepts, while motivating them to explore and learn more. A successful play session will leave your students eager to talk about the subject matter, and perhaps even to become math creators themselves using the in-game editor.
