This activity consists of a series of animations that explain some basic numerical concepts to 4th and 5th graders. To my mind, the metaphors used here (based on Indian teaching methods) do not clarify the concepts. The notion of animal homes is easy for children to grasp but their relationship to place values is obscure. My takeaway was that dogs are more valuable than bees; not the intended message. Likewise concentric circles do not add much in understanding to place values. The animation however is clear and interesting.

Ms. Nagarajan,
Thank you for contributing a well thought out and executed series of flash assets. I appreciate the time and effort it took you to create the math based interactive assets. Unfortunately, I do not know about the Indian standards of education that you presented in the asset series. I do know, however, that children of all ages who are learning math concepts may benefit from practicing math skills using the assets that you have shared. The audio and the positive reinforcement that you have provided within the assets is beneficial feedback to all learners.
Thank you!
