The three lessons
numbers 1 to 10,

Expanded form of numbers
revise what students have learned in primary school or till 5th standard.

The objective of these lessons is to establish a pattern that helps to understand the foundation of numerical arithmetics. Like,
how carry over works in addition (regrouping)
how borrow works in subtraction (ungrouping)
how large numbers are added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided (procedural simplification in place-value system)

These lessons take hardly 20 mins. Students are advised to go through them noting how numbers are represented with units blocks, tens blocks, hundreds blocks, etc. . This helps in understanding explanation of various concepts in numerical arithmetics.
