In this assessment, students investigate patterns in Cistercian numerals to see how, after the initial numbers 1-9 are established, the same symbols drawn on the stave can be used to represent two-digit numbers. Working through Cistercian numerals up to four-digit numbers, students learn to not only identify Cistercian numerals but also draw them based on place values indicated by the symbol’s placement on the stave.
