Clothesline Math

The greatest tool for teaching number sense is the number line. The Clothesline is a manipulatable number line that makes the facilitation of class discourse on number sense much more efficient and effective. The Clothesline is dynamic, meaning that the “benchmark” numbers may be adjusted when needed, as well as the values that are placed on the line.
