Mrs. Giacona is having a dinner party tonight at 7:00. She must
go the grocery store and buy the ingredients she needs for the
meal.
She drives 45 mph to the grocery store,
chooses her items and goes to the checkout line,
checks her watch to make sure she's not running late,
and gets home to put dinner in the oven.
Numbers are everywhere!

Just as people use words to communicate, numbers
can be used for communication also. 
Look at the pictures below. What numbers do you see? What meanings
do these numbers have?





The first picture is a speedometer. The numbers we
see are 10, 30, 60, 90, and 120. These numbers represent the speed
of the car. 
The next picture is a cash register. The number
we see is $5.00. This number represents the cost of the groceries. 
The last picture is a watch. The numbers we see
are
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12. These numbers represent
time.
