N for numbers and numerals!

What is a number anyway?

It is a term that is used to count, label, or measure something: zero, one, two, three, and so on, along with negative, irrational numbers, and others.  We can label these numbers when we speak of them, but how do we represent them on paper?  We use numerals! : )

Numerals have been around for a long time and all the different kinds are astounding to me.  What kids need to know is that ten (for example) is a number in written form, but the numeric form is 10.

Short and sweet!

Do you have a favorite number?
