The Cuisenaire Rods 136 Piece Set is a learning tool to help your child with maths at every stage. These tactile rods allow visual, kinesthetic and auditory learners to work out math answers by using the different coloured and sized blocks.
Cuisenaire rods (or numbers-in-colour) stemmed from the creator and Belgian teacher Georges Cuisenaire. He invented the rods as a visual mathematics teaching aid to make maths a more sensory, engaging experience. Teachers of past and present love the wooden rods, ranging from 1-10cm in lengths, as children can solve mathematical concepts hands-on. Counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, fractions and division have never been so easy nor fun!
An Australian family hand-makes this classic and popular teacher’s aid, and has done since 1973. The tough, sturdy, customised plastic tray has compartments perfect for each of the units, making storage easy. Only the highest quality timber is used, and each rod is sanded meticulously until it is exactly 10mm x 10mm, and smooth to touch. An additional parent guide allows parents and carers to use the Cuisenaire rods to demonstrate and teach their children maths.
Affordable, high-quality and Australian made, every teacher, parent and grandparent needs the Cuisenaire Rods 136 Piece Set. Preschoolers, kindy students, primary or highschool children benefit from the Cuisenaire rods! Maximise your child’s learning potential today, by encouraging them to learn through play and hands-on teaching!
