What's the math in this game?

This game helps children practice matching numerals to different representations of quantity (different shape configurations). Adding higher numeral cards - up to 10 - makes for a fun extra challenge!After children replace a numeral card with its matching shape card, ask about their thinking. For example, "How did you know to replace the 3 card with that triangle card? Could you have replaced the 4 card? Why isn't that a match?"
