The teaching sequences are conceived to address specific learning difficulty, within an inclusive perspective. They play the role of cognitive training where the student is led to use a special model (bar model) focused on the comparison of quantities. This educational tool is inspired to the bar model of Singapore approach to mathematics (see http://thesingaporemaths.com/index.html)

EDUCATIONAL AIM

Develop reasoning in arithmetic about comparison of quantities (money).
