My students love math but some struggle more than others to grasp the concepts taught. I've found that getting math manipulatives into students' hands makes math more accessible and fun for everyone.
I love teaching math and seeing the excitement in students' eyes when a math concept clicks for them.
Through my use of math manipulatives, I've seen students have that "click" happen quicker. Getting their hands involved in math helps them understand the why behind equations and takes math from being abstract to being more concrete and easier to understand.
