Along its evolution, Humans had to invent counting processes in order to help them in its daily tasks, and the more the society develops, the more is the quantity of things that needed to be counted. Counting techniques were developed to help counting (classifying) such brand new possibilities that were created in that time. Nowadays such techniques are studied at High School, in a subject called Combinatorics. Although such techniques are necessary and useful in practice, it is difficult to teach them not only at High School but also at University. In this paper, desired posture changes in one who tries to solve Combinatorics problems are pointed out and a tool that can dinamize the process of fixing the underlying concepts of this subject is presented.
