Number Sense
Number Sense is memorization and practice. The secret to getting good at number sense is to learn how to recognize and then do the rules accurately . Then learn how to do them quickly. Every practice should be under a time limit.
The first step in learning number sense should be to memorize the PERFECT SQUARES from 12 = 1 to 402 = 1600 and the PERFECT CUBES from 13 = 1 to 253 = 15625. These squares and cubes should be learned in both directions. ie. 172 = 289 and the 289 is 17.
