With his workshop looking like a disaster site, Uncle Norm’s certainly not ready for a visit from his boss. The Rads’ solution? Uncle Norm needs an inventory! Kevin and Alanna take their frazzled Uncle to a school classroom, where organization is key. They all learn about the BaseTen counting system, skip counting, and how to use a rekenrek to tackle Uncle Norm’s inventory problem.

The Gist: This episode is about place value and the base 10 number system, counting-on strategies, simple tallies and concrete bar graphs and addresses the fundamental issue of computational fluency using 10 as an anchor number.
