  3. 3. About Zero  Indian mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata has     invented the number zero. The meaning of zero is not anything or No objects Zero is written in the shape of Egg. If it were not for zero, the numbers 205 and 25 would be indistinguishable. The difference between 0 and other numbers is that all of the other numbers have a tangible visual form, whereas 0 does not. Some children really struggle to understand that 0 means nothing.

  5. 5. Point to the number 1. Have the child read it and then say, “We will put 1 spindle in this box.” Place one spindle in the compartment. Repeat for 2, counting the spindles as you place them, “One, two.” Continue this up to Once all of the spindles have been placed, look at compartment 0 and notice that there is nothing in it. Say, “This is zero. Zero means nothing. That is why there is nothing in this spot.
