What's the math in this game?

This game helps children see how written numerals (1, 2, 3...) represent quantities (quantities of dots). Understanding how quantities relate to numerals and number words is an important preschool skill! Support children’s learning by pointing out when number words (“two”) match written numerals (2) and dot quantities (two dots).
