*Beta* builds on the foundation in *Alpha* and advances to multiple-digit addition and subtraction. An important concept introduced in *Alpha* but expanded in *Beta* is the concept of place value. Understanding this concept is necessary for complete comprehension of multiple-digit operations. Our place value chart and math manipulatives allow your student to see place value in action.
