## Types of problems

There is one type of problem that shows up in this exercise:

- Select the correct answer: This problem has students look at a scene and select the correct answer to a question regarding the scene from among three possible answers.

## Strategies

This problem can be done quickly, especially considering it is multiple choice, but special care needs to be taken when reading the question as the same picture will sometimes have different questions (for example, number of puppies vs. number of bowls). It is fairly easy to attain accuracy badges and speed badges with this exercise.

- The pictures are repeated fairly often, so errors can be caught and corrected.
- Occasionally pictures are repeated but with different questions (for example, cars vs. wheels) so it is not in your best interest to memorize an answer for a picture. Read carefully!

## Real-life Applications

- Knowing how to count is essential for learning algebra and the higher maths, and counting is used for almost everything humans do.
- The whole world evolves around numbers and counting.
