How To Use It: Using the FLEXITABLE is as simple as it is fun! Here's how to engage with this exciting educational tool:
Locate the numbers running across the top of the grid in orange, which serve as addends in addition problems. In subtraction, these same orange numbers act as subtrahends and differences.
Let's say you want to find the sum of 4 and 3. Look along the top row and find the number 4.
Fold the table from top to bottom, vertically, next to the number 4.
Keep the table folded and find the number 3 down the left-hand column.
Fold the table up, horizontally under this row.
Voilà! In the right-hand corner, you'll discover the answer, 7!
