    The lesson about the magnitude of number is like an upskilling of the basics of mathematics. Emphasis on the concept of the magnitude of numbers is important for students to have a strong understanding of number sense and fluency. Visualisation, concrete manipulative, pictorial, and abstract representation are several ways to build their understanding and develop their number sense conceptually.. As teachers, we need to start from the foundation regardless of what students have advanced knowledge about numbers. Start where the students are and build the concept from there.

    The wrong notion of counting till infinity or writing down these numerals without visualising and understanding should be eliminated.

    Kyle, I finally found a vpn and need to work around it first. Hopefully, this would go on smoothlyl.Grinning
