Put your child on the fast-track to success in math: Number Sense is widely cited as the most critical math skill a child ever learns Native Numbers is the first and only comprehensive Number Sense curriculum in the App StoreInspired by research, designed by Harvard Education School graduate Dr. Michael W. Connell, and developed by a team of MIT engineers, Native Numbers is the first of its kind - a complete curriculum to help early learners develop Number Sense.Number Sense is an intuitive understanding of numbers and number relationships. Researchers have found that a child's success in early math hinges on a well-developed number sense: children who have it are likely to succeed in math while children who don't are at risk of falling behind. As a result, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Common Core State Standards have made Number Sense a focus area of mathematics education for all children in the early years.Native Numbers is the first and only comprehensive number sense curriculum available through the App Store. The curriculum is based on high-quality learning research and is designed to engage each child directly in an individualized learning experience while minimizing distractions (some people call this "hard fun.")Native Numbers develops an understanding of several core concepts and skills, including: Number Representations: Identify the numbers 1-9 as continuous quantities (rods), discrete quantities (sets of animals), and symbols (numerals) Number Relations: Answer questions about number relationships using a variety of visual representations and vocabulary (greater/less, bigger/smaller, heavier/lighter, etc.) Ordering: Arrange numbers in order from small to big and big to small Counting: Put a set of objects in order from lowest to highest and highest to lowest (ordinal numbers) and determine how many objects are in a set (cardinal numbers) Demonstrate Mastery: Apply concepts from previous activities to novel, untrained examplesRecommended Ages: 4-7 (typically) although many younger and older children can benefit from Native Numbers
