Math Lessons for K-2
Counting is one of the most important early math concepts young students need to be taught. This is a skill that lends itself well to the visual nature of an Interactive Whiteboard. Gynzy has many quality lessons that teach students to recognize and compare quantities, such as:
- Comparing quantities up to 10
- Know numbers up to 100
- Numbers to 50 on the number line
- Skip counting in 5s to 50
Along with learning to count and recognizing differences in quantities, Kindergarten and early primary school is a time for students to learn basic addition and subtraction. One great way to introduce this concept is with Number Bond Charts. We also have lessons dedicated to addition and subtraction such as:
- Addition to 20
- Decomposing and composing numbers to 10
- Number bond charts to 30
- Subtraction to 10 with three numbers
The ability to count money is a related skill that is also very important for students. Gynzy makes teaching students about currency easier than ever with our Money Drag widget, which lets you choose whatever denominations of coins and bills you’d like students to practice with. We also have lessons focused on money such as:
- Working with coins
- Working with bills and coins up to $20
- Working with bills up to $100
- Working with bills and coins up to $100

3 – 5 Math Lesson Plans
One subject that can seem intimidating to students are fractions, in part because they are difficult to visualize. Gynzy makes this subject more approachable with easy-to-use tools such as the Fraction Bar and Fraction Circle. We also offer numerous fraction lesson plans:
- Simplifying improper fractions to mixed numbers
- Adding fractions with different denominators
- Finding common denominations
- Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers after adding
- Calculating fractions as part of a whole

The concept of decimal points can be difficult for students to visualize for similar reasons as fractions. Math lesson plans that are enriched with widgets, illustrations and other multimedia can thus be a great way to teach students this concept. Gynzy has numerous lessons on decimals including:
- Rounding decimals to the nearest tenth
- Decimal numbers with 1 or 2 decimal places
- Intro to multiplication with decimals
