These tools can make it easy for students to solve problems in a shorter time with ease. One such tool is a number line. It is a tool that is easy to use and can make it easy for students to add, subtract, and even multiply numbers. A number line is a series of numbers that are placed on a straight line in an ascending order. Students can make a number line as per the question they are solving.
