It
is
common
in
the
real
world
to
see
mathematical
examples
where
the
cents
sign
was
used
when
the
dollar
sign
was
supposed
to
be
used.
Converting
and
comparing
decimals
and
fractions
can
help
clear
up
this
misconception.

One
particular
type
of
domino
game,
sometimes
called
the
All
Fives
Domino
game,
uses
multiples
of
five
in
order
to
score
points.
It
can
be
the
basis
for
a
number
of
games
designed
to
develop
conceptual
understanding
of
multiples
of
numbers
through
twelve
and
provide

to

objectives
in
a

Mathematicians
often
argue
that
anything
which
can
be
represented
numerically
or
algebraically
can
also
be
represented
geometrically.
This
is
perhaps
true
even
to
the
extent
that
simple
numeric
calculations
can
be
demonstrated
geometrically.
This
example
illustrates
one
such
geometric
process
of
addition.
