We started with Tiger forming various numbers as best as he could, without referring to the 'answers' provided in the lesson plan.
Looking at the answers was helpful in giving Tiger ideas on how to use the pieces in different ways to form the same numbers.
Compared to his approach, the answers given focused on forming the numbers in a more enclosed manner. Tiger then formed the numbers again, this time following the examples given.
