# Number Range

In primary school maths lessons, number ranges are an important part of the curriculum. Initially, only the numbers up to 10 are required, then the tens transition is on the agenda. The starting point is the number range up to 20, then up to 100 and at the end of primary school the number range up to 1000 should be mastered. With the right materials and number line exercises, children will be able to find their way around the number line and the number range up to 1000 with confidence. At TimeTEX, we offer various teaching materials for this purpose! Read on…

### Getting to Know Number Spaces in Elementary School

A number line is one of many ways to represent natural numbers and is infinitely extended. It always extends from left to right. Thus, the number space up to 1000 can be visually represented on a number line up to 1000. This simplifies children's understanding of large natural numbers.

In elementary school, initially only natural numbers are considered with the number line. Therefore, the starting point of the number line up to 1000 for the students is zero and ends at 1000. In grade 1, when the first calculations are made, the number space up to 20 is initially covered, so a small number line is sufficient.

Later, the number line can be extended to include negative numbers. Especially in grades 3 and 4 of elementary school, the number space up to 1000 is covered. Therefore, the number line up to 1000 is perfectly suitable for visualizing more complex calculations. From grade 3 onwards, the ten's transition is mastered. From then on, number lines in ten steps are often used.

At TimeTEX, you will find the appropriate number line for various number spaces & difficulty levels.

## How Does a Number Line Work?

The number line is particularly useful for giving children an overview of the number space. However, the number line also provides good orientation within the number space up to 20, 100, or 1000. Especially when a new number space, such as the number space up to 100, is explored, as part of the ten's transition, it is important for children to find their way around well. For example, they should develop a sense of how large the intervals between the individual numbers are and in what relation the natural numbers stand to each other. This strengthens the children's competencies in mathematics.

Initial classifications can be made well within the framework of simple search exercises. Here, the class should search for specific numbers on the number line and represent them in color. As a next step, distances between the numbers on the number line can be read as a first step towards addition and subtraction. These search games are fun and ignite enthusiasm for the number line!

### Learning Number Spaces with Number Lines

The number line maps the abstract number spaces for children on a straight line. Thus, the relationship between the numbers is represented. A number line thus enables orientation in number spaces that are no longer countable without aids. Therefore, a number line in elementary school makes it easier for students to understand addition and subtraction tasks. This way, children can practice arithmetic without counting.

*Tip:* To further facilitate students' understanding and practice of mathematical concepts, the number line can be combined with the Abaco arithmetic aid and the Dienes Material for math. The Dienes Material is used to teach students counting, complementing, comparing numbers, and dividing numbers in a **visual way**. It enables students to better understand abstract arithmetic processes and contributes to promoting understanding of numbers in children. By combining the number line with the Abaco arithmetic aid and the Dienes Material, students receive additional tools to learn the **decimal system playfully**, simplify large numbers, and easily perform number decomposition. In addition, they can represent the value of a number in a tangible way. This way, learning and practicing mathematical concepts becomes an interactive and enriching experience for students. Discover also other mathematics teaching aids, such as our times tables games.

The number line makes it easier for teachers to explain mathematical concepts. For example, the number line can be used to show and verify which of two numbers is greater. Plus and minus calculations can also be visualized easily on the number line. Thus, the number line facilitates abstract tasks with large natural numbers, for example, in the number space up to 100, for many elementary school students.

The number line is suitable for various exercises and tasks related to ten's transitions, addition, and subtraction up to multiplication. Therefore, the number line is a good tool for explaining and illustrating mathematics in elementary school.

As you can see, there are many great ways to introduce children to number spaces.
