Hands-On Math is a resource book of manipulative math activities designed to supplement any 2-3 math program. It is built on the premise that young children learn math concepts best through hands-on experiences with concrete objects. As you implement the activities, you will see how using manipulatives actively involves students in the learning process and gives them a wonderful sense of discovery and empowerment as they explore mathematical concepts.
The core of the book consists of 14 chapters, each of which focuses on a math concept such as geometry, patterns, or measurement. The time spent on a given chapter will vary according to the needs of your class.
