 Description

 Content: Set of 100 2-cm cubes in 10 colors. Includes teacher-tested activities.Each set is packed in a resealable plastic bag.Item size: 20 x 20 x 2 cm High-quality plastic cubes link together on all sides and come in ten bright colors. Set of 100 two-centimeter cubes is great for lacing, counting, patterning, basic operations, measurement, fractions, area, perimeter and problem solving. Mathlink Cube activities can be used for whole group, individual, or small group instruction. Manipulatives are non-returnable.
 Our recommendation: Our suggested uses for Mathlink Cubes: Kindergarten Sort by color. Count by ones and by twos. Compare sets of different colors (which has more or less?) Show the pattern of one more or one less. Compare length and height. Illustrate simple addition and subtraction. Show 1/2 with two colors and 1/4 with four colors. Group by tens and ones for counting to 100. Use one block as a unit of measurement. Match different shapes or color patterns. Primary 1 Illustrate number bonds and word problems. Use a different color for each part, compare to a third color for the whole. See how many combinations are possible, e.g. 1 and 9 make 10, 2 and 8 make 10, etc. Illustrate addition and subtraction. Make patterns according to color,, size, or shape. Make sets and rectangles to show multiplication and division. Use as units of weight. Primary 2 Illustrate word problems. Show fractions with two colors in various patterns. For example, use 8 cubes, 3 of one color and 5 of another. Link together. One color is 3/8, the other is 5/8. Compare a fractional amount to a whole to find out how many more equal fractional parts are needed to make a whole. For example, 8 units is the whole, one block is 1/8, if you have 3 blocks, or 3/8, 5 more, or 5/8 is needed to make a whole. Use as square units and illustrate areas. Create patterns according to color, size, shape, pattern of colors in a shape, orientation of a shape. Primary 3 Illustrate word problems. Illustrate equivalent fractions For example, use 8 different colors joined to show eighths, four different colors in twos to show fourths, two different colors in fours to show halves. Primary 4 Show factors by making rectangles or arrays. Find missing factors as one side of a rectangle. Illustrate addition of fractions with like denominators. Use different colors to show addition of fractions with related denominators. Illustrate fractions of a whole. For example, to show 2/3 of 10, link together 3 each of ten different colors and link those together to make a train 30 blocks long. Each color is 1/10. To divide into thirds, take 3 colors and 1/3 of another color. 2/3 is 6 colors and 2/3 of other colors. Create 3-dimensinal shapes with unit cubes. Illustrate cubic units and volume. Primary 5 Illustrate product of a fraction. For example, to show 3/4 x 4/5 make a two rectangles of 5 columns and 3 rows for the whole. Break off 3 columns of one to show 4/5 and three rows of that to show 3/4 of the 4/5. Compare that piece to the second rectangle.
