The term is used as means of asking students to write down equations using simple mathematical symbols (numerals, the four main basic mathematical operators, equality symbol).[5] Sometimes boxes or shapes are used to indicate unknown values. As such number sentences are used to introduce students to notions of structure and algebra prior to a more formal treatment of these concepts.

A number sentence without unknowns is equivalent to a logical proposition expressed using the notation of arithmetic.

FOR EXAMPLES:

A valid number sentence that is true: 3+10=13 A valid number sentence is 3+3=6 A valid number sentence that is false: 28 + 9 = 196.

A valid number sentence using a 'less than' symbol: 3 + 6 < 10.

An example from a lesson plan:

Some students will use a direct computational approach. They will carry out the addition 26 + 39 = 65, put 65 = 26 + â¡, and then find that â¡ = 39.[6]
