“The Box of Facts is just what we needed for basic fact strategy instruction. The cards provide a visual model that helps students connect hands-on activities to more abstract thinking strategies. Students have explained that they thought through a near doubles fact by picturing the double domino card in their mind and adding one more red dot.”
