DIY Math Multiplying Manipulatives * Evil Math Wizard I teach math to 2-5th graders, which is a big range. But it’s fun for me to see the development changes especially when using objects to help them figure things out, from fingers, blocks, counters, fractions kits, etc. I encourage my students to use them. I don’t want them to hide their fingers under their desk when they are figuring things out. It’s an important part of math to visualize.

Students use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range. The frames help students see quantities as equal groups of other quantities and in relation to benchmark quantities. This helps primary students move away from one-by-one counting toward more efficient ways of counting and computing.
Interactive Fraction Wall explore Fractions Percentages and Decimals Fraction walls are a great way to teach about fractions and in particular equivalent fractions. In a fraction wall each row or layer of the wall represents one whole number. The layers are divided into a number of bricks and hence each brick represents a fraction whose denominator is equal to the number of bricks in that layer. Each brick can be turned on or off by clicking it. This wall also allows the display of decimal and percentage values. To the right of the wall are boxes which can be hidden, the value of each box is fraction of the wall that has been turned on. 5th Grade Well. I have to admit.
