Manipulative Mathematics – Student Comments

This is what some of our students have said about how Manipulative Mathematics activities have helped them learn.

  • The 24 Game is a fun challenge figuring out how many ways to equal 24.
  • The number line was most helpful to me.  It helped me refresh the concept of using and differentiating between different kinds of numbers and identifying them in math problems.
  • My favorite manipulative activity was the fraction pieces, because I learned how to perform fraction operations easier.
  • Two color counters were my favorite.  When I work with negatives and positives, I remember and go back to the counters.
  • The Geoboard helped me understand the slope.  It really showed the difference between the rise and the run.
