Students will learn how to extend the count sequence and gain an understanding of place value in order to apply that understanding to addition and subtraction equations. Age-appropriate text and eye-catching visuals make these concepts easy to understand for beginning math students. Readers will watch a runner go for the gold at their school's track meet, which provides the framework for teaching about place value. Readers will be able to look at two numbers and determine which is greater than, which is lesser than, or if they are equal. This volume satisfies CCSS Math Standard 1.NBT.B.3.
