# What is Number Basics?

Number Basics is built to help students develop their foundational math skills and number sense. It was designed with our youngest learners in mind. Every question has audio read-aloud, and there are a lot of visuals throughout the practice mode as well. When using Number Basics, students will be working on the following skills: number recognition, systematic counting, one to one correspondence, quantity comparison, estimation, and number patterns, and more.
