One of the main indicators of the formation of the system is “Numbers and calculations: The order of numbers on the number line”. It allows you to determine the level of formation of a visual – figurative understanding of a set of natural numbers and the ability to use a number line to determine the place of a number in a sequence from 1 to 20, as well as in solving equations and inequalities.
For children, age 5, the numerical axis is a clear geometric image of the set of natural numbers. It consists of an origin point and a ray that corresponds to positive numbers. The natural order of the points on the line in such correspondence is consistent with the ordering of the numbers. The numerical axis for children aged 5 is used as a visual aid for determining a sequence of numbers from 1 to 20, establishing order in counting, solving simple equations and inequalities. Line segments represent numerical intervals.
The test results, unfortunately, showed the absence of a clearly formed understanding of a natural number as a result of counting and measurement. The student was not able to determine the place of a number in a sequence of numbers from 1 to 20, has difficulty positioning a number within 20 when solving equations and inequalities, and most likely does not use a numerical segment to compare and choose the correct answer.
To develop this skill, we recommend regular exercises with materials:
