A Math Framework for Multiple Grade Levels As a K–12 district math coach, I travel to 67 classrooms and participate in math instruction at different grade levels. Traveling outside of my school district, I’ve communicated with many pre-K through university math educators in person, on campuses, at conferences, and through social media. I’ve encountered rich math experiences at the secondary level, but found that they could not easily be transferred to primary classrooms. Likewise, I’ve experienced some highly effective practices in primary classrooms that would be difficult to implement in secondary settings.

A brief history of numerical systems - Alessandra King A numerical system is a set of symbols and rules used to represent numbers. All civilizations had to deal with expressing ever larger numerical quantities and they all faced the same issues. A look at the different ways humans across the planet and across the ages handled this challenge is fascinating. Among the many accounts of this long intellectual adventure, a couple are particularly readable and useful for our ends: Steven Strogatz’s section in his book “The Joy of X", excerpts of which are available online, and the article “Historical Counting Systems” in the book “Math in Society” by Lippman (Pierce College) which also provides clarifying examples and practice exercises. This fun video is also an amusing yet clear introduction to the origin and development of number systems.
