Exploring Math Manipulatives

Many parents want to use hands on materials for math education but don't know what to try. Here's a chance to see what they can do. For early elementary students and their parents. Each week we will explore math concepts using a different hands-on material. Week 1 we will use geoboards to look at shape, symmetry and area. Week 2 we will use numberlines (including some big enough to walk on) to look at counting, skip counting, adding and subtracting. Week 3 we will use cuisinaire rods to explore numbers, patterns and addition. Week 4 we will use base ten blocks for more number activities.
