  • Playing with discs explains the associative property of numbers i.e. fourness of four or fiveness of five. It helps children to understand that each number except zero represents a group of things. Correlating numbers with its quantities helps children to understand the quantitative value of numbers. Four means four pencils/chocolates/erasers etc. Making different combinations of numbers helps in understanding the commutative aspect of addition. 5 is made of 5 + 0 = 5, 4 + 1 = 5, 3 + 2 = 5, 2 + 3 = 5, 1 + 4 = 5, and 0 + 5 = 5.
