What's the math in this game?

Notice which strategies children use to identify the missing card. Strategy choice can tell you a lot about what children know and what they are ready to learn! For example, some children will count the cards from 1 up to the missing card. Others will know the missing card right away because they know 4 comes after 3 and before 5. Point out the "number-before" and “number-after” to direct children's attention to number order.
