I am excited to be here in **New Orleans at the 2014 NCTM conference**. Yesterday was a great day of sessions for me, and I am delighted to be presenting a session in just a couple of hours! **“Seeing Dots: Using Arrays to Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide”** will focus on all the different ways **the 100 dot array** can be used to help students visualize and represent numbers — something which leads to a deeper understanding of numbers.

I am posting the handout from the workshop as well as links to 100 dot arrays is the different sizes.

I hope you try using the 100 dot array in your elementary classroom!

Download the conference handout here.

Download a 100 dot large array here.

Download 4 arrays on a page here.

Download 12 arrays on a page here.

Mathematically yours,

Carollee
