Math Manipulatives Aide Marvelous Mathematicians

My students need math manipulatives such as pattern blocks and snap cubes, so that they can see that numbers and shapes are much more than two dimensional.

My Students

The students in my school come from low socioeconomic homes. I teach at a Title I school where everyone receives a free or reduced-price lunch. Many students struggle to purchase necessary items in order to help them be successful in the classroom setting.

Despite having major obstacles to overcome daily just in order to get to school, the students show up daily with great spirits and ready to learn.

While at school, they learn to be resourceful with what they have in their surroundings, how to work with many people with different viewpoints, all while doing it collaboratively. Many students struggle with mathematics just on pencil and paper and need a variety of resources in order to help them process the mathematical content.

My Project

This project will benefit my students by allowing them to create and build story problems. It will allow them to see that parts of a whole (fractions) are everywhere and that shapes can be used to solve even the most complex math problems. This project will also benefit my students who learn best by building a model and allowing them to discover fractions by using the snap cubes. The pattern blocks will aide my students learning when being asked to draw or build a model that is on a smaller scale from the actual object. Lastly, it will allow my students to get away from the monotony of using only paper and pencil to solve their problems.
