Anchor without Pants


Some people may want to add why this works (or doesn’t work) but this is an anchor to help students remember where the zero cannot go!

Thank you to the teacher who shared this at a workshop.

This can be supplemented with other examples like 12 cookies divided by no people or count by zeros and you will never get to 12.
