Task# Assessing Counting Sequences Part II

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

Students may benefit from visualizing a number line when attempting these tasks. The teacher can point to an empty tabletop and say, 'Pretend the numbers are here, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.' Then when asking, 'Tell me the number after,' point to the approximate location on the imaginary number line that the number would be. This can be helpful for students who do not seem to understand the language of number after or number before.
