Set 04 Skip Counting
These games are intended to assist children in understanding that sequences can follow rules other than a sequence of ones. A skip counting sequence gives the multiples of the counting group. Skip counting can therefore be used to solve multiplication problems in the early stages of learning multiplication facts. These games also present multiplication as an equal addition, using an equal grouping structure.
