“Number Sense: the most important mathematical concept in 21st Century K-12 education”
The fact is, students who lack a strong number sense have trouble developing the foundation needed for even simple arithmetic, let alone more complex mathematics. In one study of 180 seventh-graders conducted by the University of Missouri in 2013, researchers found that, Ã¢â‚¬Å“those who lagged behind their peers in a test of core math skills needed to function as adults were the same kids who had the least number sense or fluency way back when they started first grade.â€ (Neergaard, 2013) Now connect the dots to the sobering fact that 1 in 5 U.S. adults lacks the math competency of a middle school studentâ€“leaving them woefully unqualified for most jobs.
