Lead Speaker:
Maria DaSilva
Fay Zenigami and Seanyelle Yagi

Experience how to introduce students to number systems and place value using units of continuous quantities of length, area, and volume. Explore bases less than ten to enhance the understanding of regrouping in a given number system. Modeling place-value units in other bases leads to meaningful conceptual understanding of the decimal system.
