Using picture story books to discover and explore the concept of equivalence. (English)
Aust. Prim. Math. Classr. 21, No. 2, 26-31 (2016).
Summary: This article describes activities in which students deepen their relational understanding of the equals sign through exploring inequalities in a competitive dice game, built around the familiar fairy-tale {\it The three little pigs} and {\it The big bad wolf}. The activity can be adapted to different abilities by choosing more or less challenging dice combinations. The two follow-up investigations, based on the story {\it Who sank the boat?}, are intended to consolidate (Investigation 1), and further extend (Investigation 2), student understanding of the equivalence concept.
