Brain research indicates that the brain learns first at a concrete level (hands-on manipulatives), then at a pictorial level, and finally at an abstract level. Furthermore, we also know the more senses that are involved in learning, the more powerful the learning becomes. Using manipulatives engages those senses. So when we use manipulatives like cubes, protractor, and fraction bars, students get to see, hear and touch the math. There is also such a variety of learning styles that if we are not using manipulatives, we are ignoring all those hands-on learners (and visual learners if we are not using pictures or models).
