# Number Trains

Students practise whole number sequences using numerals, quantities (eg dots) and words. Thinking is focused on considering the number that comes before and after given numbers.

### Teacher notes

• Students place train carriages on a track in order, one at a time, by working out the number that comes before and after the number on each carriage.
• Numbers are represented as words, numerals, dots, and/or MAB blocks.
• Randomised number generation encourages repeated use.
